Mid to Late Summer Blooming Lavenders

Most late season Lavenders belong to the Lavandula x intermedia (Lavandin) group but some cultivars of Lavandula angustifolia (English Lavender) are also prized for their midsummer blooms. Flowering typically occurs in July or August and tends to last until late summer.

Continuously Blooming Lavenders

While Lavender is usually regarded as a summer-blooming flower, some Lavender plants are early bloomers with their magnificent blooms appearing early in spring. Others are late bloomers with blooms opening up in midsummer and lasting until late summer. Planting one of each in your garden will reward you with heavenly fragrance and attractive flower spikes from spring until late summer. Alternatively, you can simply choose a variety of Lavender which blooms almost continuously from spring to summer's end.

Lavandula x intermedia (Lavender)

Tough, Lavandin tends to grow larger, bloom later and produce more flower spikes than other Lavenders. This Lavender enjoys a remarkable presence in the garden as specimens or hedges.

Lavender Varieties and Blooming Seasons

Depending on where you live, you can enjoy Lavender blooms almost all year in your garden. Why? Because not all Lavenders bloom at the same time and some bloom continuously, producing flowers all spring and summer.
