A stunning new French lavender, with grey-green, aromatic leaves and fat flowerheads studded with tiny purple flowers, from which delicate, pink, upright flags emerge like butterfly wings and flutter in the breeze. It has a compact, upright habit, which makes it particularly good for small gardens. It looks wonderful planted en masse in a protected, sunny border where its heady fragrance can be enjoyed, or in a container. Like most French lavenders, it is earlier flowering than its English cousins, but associates well with them if you want to prolong the season of lavender in your garden. The flower-spikes are also a magnet for bees and other nectar-loving insects. In frost-prone areas it is best grown in a large container and over-wintered indoors. Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded to retain a compact shape. Carefully trim back in April, taking care not to cut into old wood.
