Sierra de La Cabrera and Spanish Lavender

Sierra de La Cabrera and Spanish Lavender
Spring flowers - June 2014. The Lavender flowers earlier in the valleys than here.

It used to be called French or Provencal lavender because it has the same two top purple leaves (not petals) but recent DNA profiling showed that it is a different variety found only in Central and Southern Spain and Portugal.

Hi Tanja.
I replied shortly after your comment but it disappeared. I still haven't got used to the differences. But I'm getting there slowly!
What I said was that my latest photo shows that the lavender is happy in La Cabrera, In fact all my lavender shots are from there! So there is no conflict or contrast between the two! When the lavender is in season it is always from La Cabrera. Out of season and of course my La Cabrera shots don't have any lavender in them! :o)
Thank you for your nice comments, as usual.
Best wishes, Andy

Thank you, Ron.
It is excellent walking country, either for following well trod paths or for more interesting scrambling at all levels. And only 30 miles from the centre of Madrid. Amazingly, I often have only myself for company all day!
Have a good week.

Andy Rodker club has replied to Eva Lewitus club
It is lavender, Eva. I meant 'different variety', not species. I will amend my notes. Sorry to have confused you.
It smells as wonderful as you might hope!

So do they use this lavender as they do with the other lavender?
3 years ago.
Andy Rodker club has replied to Eva Lewitus club
I'm not sure. On the plain they grow other varieties commercially. Maybe this one is not responsive to commercial cultivation. I just don't know, Sorry!

La Lavandula -no Lavanda- o Cantueso, también conocida en otras zonas como Tomillo Borriquero, fue usada en tiempos pasados como planta medicinal por sus extraordinarias propiedades, estimulantes, digestivas y antisépticas entre otras. Planta muy abundante en la sierra madrileña. :-))

Andy Rodker club has replied to Campayo 2017
Thank you, Campayo. I knew the term Cantueso, I think you taught me that on Pano!
But I am not clear: Is it or is it not a plant of the lavander family? I read that it was and also that although it looks exactly like the French variety it is in fact a different variety as shown by DNA profiling. I will have to get an up-to-date guide from Wiki when I next have the time!!
Many thanks and all best wishes, Andy
