Re: What Kind of Lavender is this?

It looks like Spanish lavender. Lavendeer stoechas. The flower has the tell tale rabbit ears at the top. It is one of the more adaptible lavenders for warmer climates. Although I like and have had this lavender before it does not have a long bloom season. It is not an augustifolia so it is more for fragrance and drying than for cooking. I usually grow lavender multifeda, it is definitely more musty and ornamental and in Hawaii it will bloom almost the entire year.

In warm climates zones 9-11, Spanish lavender, l. multifeda and the lavindins do better. Lavender augustifolia will do well only in the high elevations like in Kula on Maui where there is a lavendar farm. I have Provence, Goodwin Creek, French Lavender, Otto Quast, and multifeda now.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
