Lavender ID

Can anyone identify what lavender this is please? I bought it in early spring, it was just labelled 'Lavandula Angustifolia' and its only now started flowering but noticed its not as vibrant as my other Angustifolia which is a Munstead. Thanks!

    It'll just be Lavandula angustifolia or 'standard' lavender.  
    Munstead, Hidcote etc, are just cultivated varieties of it  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    There's a bit of variety in the colours; Munstead is generally paler than Hidcote.  There are other named ones including a pink.
