Lavandula stoechas 'Flaming Purple' will set your garden alight with the striking long 'ears' of its dark purple, fragrant flowers dancing like flames in the breeze above the green foliage. This variety has an RHS Award of Garden Merit.

This evergreen shrub is drought-resistant and easy to grow in full sun, although it must have well-drained soil and prefers a sheltered site. It will need protecting from severe winter weather. Reaching its mature 75cm x 50cm height and spread in around 5 years, you can remove the faded flower heads after flowering and cut it back in spring to maintain its shape.

French lavender can be grown in your border or a container and will attract bees and butterflies into your garden.
