Kew Red Lavender, Butterfly Lavender, (Lavandula stoechas)

Color Name: Kew Red Lavender

The 'Lavender-Kew Red' Herb Plant (also referred to as Kew Pink), is known for its stunning and unusual fuchsia-red blooms. It has a compact, bushy habit, with vibrant flowers clustering atop short stems of light green slender-leaved foliage. This Spanish lavender prefers full sun and well-drained soil. It performs well in poor soil, and when in bloom, it attracts butterflies and other pollinators. Pinching spent blooms will encourage a possible second bloom period in the fall. Fresh-cut lavender is excellent for aromatic bouquets, and it can also be dried for sachets and potpourris.

Topped with pale pink bracts, the wonderful, red-violet blooms produce an exceptional two-toned effect, while adding an exciting new color to the species. This long blooming, delightfully aromatic lavender sports a bushy mound of green-gray feathery evergreen foliage. Excellent, irreplaceable shrub in your herb collection.
