An extremely vigorous selection from England’s David Tristam with a strong, upright branching habit and deep blue-violet flower spikes appearing from April to August. The flowers are subtended by rich purple bracts typical of the Spanish lavenders. ‘Willow Vale’ is similar in appearance to ‘Otto Quast’, but has proven to be a much stouter, more vigorous cultivar reaching 2-3’ tall with an equal spread. Hardy to 0F. Deer resistant.
