... the Power of Lavender!
Currently there are over 45 different species with over 450 varieties. More lavender species/varieties have yet to be classified. Lavender belongs to the genus Lavandula. In Northern latitudes the two most common species are angustifolia and x intermedia (also called lavandin).
Weather (more specifically, the amount of rain) dictates the strength of scent in the lavender. Let's hope for some rain!
