Lavandula stoechas ssp pedunculata 'Willow Vale' (Willow Vale Lavender) - Lavandula stoechas ssp. pedunculata 'Willow Vale' is a vigorous and very showy lavender, 2-3 feet tall and as wide with strongly aromatic silver-gray foliage. The flowers with blue purple bracts on top rise above the foliage on long peduncles from spring into fall. It is thought to be one of the hardiest of the Spanish Lavender group as it is known to take temperatures down below 15 degrees F. It does best when it is planted in the full sun. This plant came from British plant breeder David Tristram of Walberton Nursery in West Sussex, England. The flowers of this lavender are not recommended for human consumption. We grew this plant from 2002 until 2008.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Lavandula 'Willow Vale'.
