With a wide range of lavender varieties available, it can be confusing to consider which one is best for scent, for cut stems and for the garden. I’ll discuss 4 types of lavender plants that would all be suitable for your landscape or containers – focusing on their scent and growth characteristics. The varieties I’ll cover are: English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Lavandin (L. x intermedia), Spanish Lavender (L. stoechas) and Fringed Lavender (L. dentata). I’m planning to start a whole bunch more from seed this winter, as well as by cuttings in spring – so if you’re planning a foray into lavender as well, you may want to check back in!
