Lavandula stoechas Celebration has the distinctive chic of other French lavenders - the beautifully defined flower heads with decoratively frilled bracts emerging from the top of the bloom - but this variety is unusual: it has white bracts. The contrast between the deep purple flowers, with tiny orange eyes, and the green-tinged, white bracts is striking, and particularly lovely when the bracts flutter in the breeze.
The foliage, a lighter green than most varieties, is upright and restrained in form. It makes it an ideal candidate for the front of sunny borders and well positioned containers. The foliage and flowers, particularly if crushed, are wonderfully aromatic and attract bees and other pollinators to the garden when in flower.
