English Lavender - Lavandula angustifolia, Botanical Classification and Varieties

Lavandula angustifolia is one of the most popular types of lavender. This is due to the fact that it is a bush of exceptional strength – when cultivated in gravelly and calcareous soils with excellent drainage – and on the other hand the possibility of utilizing its flowers both as dried flowers and for the production of high quality essential oil.

These features gave the incentive to create many varieties of the species. Lavandula angustifolia varieties now number several dozens and are suitable for planting both in productive plantations and for planting in gardens, parks or other suitable places, but also for planting them in pots, window-boxes and all types of containers.
