For centuries the fragrant flowers have been used in dried sachets, scented soaps, perfumes and potpourris. Lavender oil is an important article of commerce. In the garden, lavenders make sweet-smelling border plants along pathways. The most popular are the English varieties.

French Group (L. stoechas) Despite the name these lavenders are not grown in France for the fragrance industry. Their oils possess a pronounced camphorous note which is undesirable. However they make stunning aromatic bedding plants with showy butterfly-like "wings" dancing atop the flowers. Confusingly also known as Spanish lavender.
