Lavender ID

Hello all,

I bought this lavender last summer in a bargain section and the label on the pot just said lavender. It's started flowering and I wondered if anyone knows which one it is? It doesn't seem to have any of the tiny flowers just the large pink bracts. Any ideas? It has very light green leaves, see picture 2.

    I think those with the tufty tops are French Lavender. Lavendula stoechas

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • Thanks Nut, I wonder if anyone know which stoechas it is? I went back to the shop today, but they don't have any in stock the same image

    I suspect it's the species form, or at least grown from seed so not a named variety which is why they just said it was 'Lavendar'.

    Maybe find it under Lavandula 'Papillon'

  • Sorry for the delay, just noticed yesterday the bud had opened up more and looks just like the Papillon. The leaves smell amazing, thank you.
