Would like Common & Bot. ID of this flower. Pic taken in April 2011 in Los Altos,California. Has mild, pleasant fragrance.


I hope Lavandula stoechas, French lavander, Spanish lavander or topped lavander.


Yes Lavandula stoechas


Yes, Spanish lavander… notice spelling… Lavandula stoechas… L A V A >>>> in Botanical name
is different from colloquial spelling… LAVENDER …. L A V E >>>>>
A nice mild lavender…. within control.. in parts of Australia..its considered a weed now…
BUT I used to grow them in summer… where it snows… it dies in winter..has to be replanted in spring from cuttings taken previous mid- summer ans overwintered in the basement under grow lights and bottom
heat mat… … flowers are heavenly added to face wash water… try it next time in california..

Lavendula stoechas captured at USA, Chicago Botanical Garden in May 2013.
Please validate…


how do you know the id?
was it labelled at the botanical garden?
if it was did you photograph it or is it showing somehow in your full pictures, try to enlarge your original pixel jpg files and look for the label and if you can please
show us the label
otherwise this is french lavender
cant go beyond it because your pictures dont show the size of leaves and the plant itself
no matter who any hardy soul puts their name and reputation on line here…
thousands of cultivars exist
only the gardener knows what he or she planted or the botanical garden that studies them know…


Thanks …, I could not find the label for this plant in my pics. So this is open to id….

wiki says that French lavender is Lavendula stoechas
The Chicago Botanic Gargen webpag says that they have 3 varieties: L. stoechas and 2 cultivars of L. angustifolia
Google images show that the flower spikes match L. stoechas more than the said 2 species of L. angustifolia
