A quick bloomer, Spanish Eyes fernleaf lavender produces flowers early and often throughout the season. The gorgeous bright blue blooms are set among silvery, fern-like foliage, and last longer than many other types of lavender, making this plant an ideal landscaping element. While many other varieties dislike moist air, Spanish Eyes can take both humidity and heat. This is a great choice for containers, and butterflies love it. Wherever you grow it, be sure to provide plenty of drainage, as lavender likes its soil on the drier side.
