A yellow-flowered Spanish lavender (Lavendula stoechas; often called "Lavandula viridis") with the classic rabbit ear bracts. The blossoms are resinous in texture, emitting an earthy, pungent pine fragrance mixed with an undertone of the classic lavender scent. Lavenders are Mediterranean shrubs that perform well in hot climates and alkaline soils. Expect prodigious blossoms from the second year onward. Established plants have some degree of frost tolerance.
