Otto Quast Spanish Lavender
Lavandula stoechas 'Otto Quast'
|Description||Fragrant, rich royal purple flower spikes rise above the dense mound of fine, gray-green foliage, providing months of seasonal color. A wonderfully rugged and fuss-free choice for borders and gardens that will tackle summer heat and drought with grace. An excellent choice for an accent in sunny borders and rock gardens. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Let soil go almost dry between waterings.|
|Blooms||Mid-Spring through Midsummer|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 20 to 28 in. tall, 18 to 36 in. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||Spanish Lavender's rangy shape and thicker flower heads make a bolder statement than its less-rugged relatives. A great filler for shrub beds, as edging or in a clump of three to five. Cluster next to landscape boulders to make them appear more natural or near columns and fence posts to soften the transition. Excellent for rock gardens and slopes.|
|Companion Plants||Fountain Grass (Pennisetum); Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Coneflower (Echinacea); Rose Mallow (Hibiscus moscheutos); Rose (Rosa); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum)|
|Care||Thrives in lean, loose, fast-draining, slightly alkaline soil with a gravel mulch. Plant with crowns slightly above soil level. Water regularly during first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Prune lightly after flowering to promote next season's growth.|
|Lore||Lavender has been a favorite plant and fragrance for the bath since Roman times. It is equally popular today for cut sprigs and dried aromatics in the home.|
