Mixed Lavender BloomingAll lavender have a different bloom habit and patterns. You can have continual bloom throughout the season if you incorporate different lavender in your garden or on your farm. As a general rule the angustafolias bloom first, and then followed by the lavandins-hybrid lavenders. You may get sporadic second bloom on the lavandins in September, but the true double bloomers are found amongst the angustafolia or true lavender varieties. Take a peak at the table to guide you.
