Lavandula dentata, or toothed Lavender, has distinctly toothed foliage and makes a marvellous specimen in a pot or in the borders. It is vigorous and will form a bushy plant in one season. The pale blue flowers are particularly attractive and it is easily overwintered in a frost free greenhouse.

Lavandula x intermedia is also sometimes known as Lavandin. All the intermedia cultivars are particularly attractive to bees and butterflies and the large flowers have the strongest scent of all the Lavenders. The foliage is silvery and forms a large mound. They are all fully hardy.
