    Plant Care

    Otto Quast Spanish Lavender, Lavandula stoechas 'Otto Quast' ('Quasti') is a drought-tolerant plant that prefers well-draining soil and a sunny location. This plant is hardy in zones 8-11 and can grow up to 24 inches in height and 36 inches in width. Proper care and attention are essential for the plant to thrive.

    Otto Quast Spanish Lavender requires full sun for at least six hours a day to grow and bloom. It is best to plant it in well-draining soil, preferably sandy or loamy soil. The soil pH should be slightly acidic to neutral (6.5-7.5). Lavenders generally do not like clay soil, as it can hold water, leading to root rot and other diseases.

    Lavenders prefer to be on the dry side, and overwatering can cause root rot. Watering once or twice a week during hot, dry weather is sufficient. It is best to water at the base of the plant, avoiding wetting the foliage. Fertilizer is not necessary, but a light application of an organic fertilizer in spring can encourage growth and flowering.

    Regular pruning is necessary to keep Otto Quast Spanish Lavender looking its best. Prune after the first flush of blooms, which usually occurs in early summer. Cut back to about 1/3 of the plant's size, leaving some green growth. Pruning will help prevent the plant from becoming too woody, and promote a bushier, more compact form. Deadheading spent blooms can also encourage more flowers.

    Otto Quast Spanish Lavender is generally a hardy plant, but it can be affected by environmental factors such as extreme temperatures or humidity. In colder regions, the plant may die back to the ground in winter, but it will regrow in the spring. Lavender is also susceptible to pests such as spider mites and aphids. Check for pests regularly and treat them as needed.

    Overall, Otto Quast Spanish Lavender is a beautiful and easy-to-grow plant that can add color and fragrance to any garden. With the right care and attention, it can provide years of enjoyment.
