Lavandula stoechas / pedunculata Lusi Purple, French Lavender Plants

Lusi Purple is a petite French lavender with quite long, very deep purple-blue flower heads topped with jolly purple "ears" on top. The grey-green evergreen foliage is aromatic. One of our smaller lavender varieties, they reach about 40cm tall, 60cm including the flower stalks.

French lavender blooms earlier than its "English" angustifolia relatives, sometimes starting in May: if you deadhead it a little, you can extend its flowering into August, but June & July are its peak season.


  • Colour: Deep purple flowers with lighter "ears"
  • Height: 40cm
  • Scent: Strong lavender scent
  • Flowering: May to July/August
  • Evergreen, grey-green aromatic foliage
  • Drought resistant, grows on the coast
  • Attractive to bees and butterflies

Growing French Lavender

The RHS give it a hardiness rating of H4, the most tricky rating, meaning it will withstand an "average winter" down to around -5C without much damage.
Ideally, it wants a sheltered, sunny spot against a south-facing wall in most of the country outside the South West. In colder inland and Northern regions, we recommend growing it in pots that can either be moved into shelter in winter, or that receive heat from the house and can be covered up to make a cosy microclimate. For protection in the garden, horticultural fleece is good for rows, and buckets with ventilation holes in them, or large pots, should work for covering single plants. 

Plant in sharply drained soil and full sun. If your soil’s heavy, dig in lots of grit and make a ridge or raised bed, or save yourself the trouble and grow it in pots.
Prune immediately after flowering.

Did you know?

Taxonomists, who probably wouldn't do this sort of thing if there were more youth programs available for them, have been squabbling for years about the correct classification for these lavenders. To a gardener, Lavandula stoechas and Lavandula pedunculata are as good as the same thing, but to avoid trouble, calling this one Lavandula pedunculata subsp. lusitanica should keep the taxonomy inspectors off your back.
