Posted on

Spanish lavender might be misinterpreted with the common English lavender. Well, this isn’t wrong as people might hardly remember the wide varieties of lavender. To put it simply, English lavender is the most common version and the most old-fashioned version of lavender you might ever see. Lavender will always be that purple flowers plant.

However, the one that differentiates between English lavender and also Spanish lavender (Lavandula Stoechas) is the tolerance of the hot climates possessed by the Spanish lavender. It can stand being in the hot climates rather than the freezing climates. There are still a lot that you need to know about this lavender. As a suggestion, you need to keep on reading to thank me later.

The other Spanish “lavandula stoechas” lavender to notice is the Lutsko’s Dwarf. It looks short because it is only 30 cm. This will suit into your small container perfectly. People can consider it as the mini version of the lavender which is placed in a container or a small pot. It can be used as the decorative pot with flowers too.

In taking care of this kind of lavender, there aren’t any differences with those common varieties of lavender. Spanish lavender tolerates more heat rather than cold. When you live in a country whose climates are hot and also dry, I highly recommend you would better growing this evergreen shrub.
