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

Thanks for the id. This was the color of the leaves, silvery.
