Lavender flowering times
Hey everyone, I'm a bit of a gardening novice so I thought I'd ask on here for advice.
I'm doing a practical project dissertation for the final module of my biology degree. My research question is looking at whether common UK pollinators (bees, butterflies etc.) prefer violet or white lavender flowers. I need to collect data from June (or earlier) to early July, but I'm having difficulty identifying particularly a white lavender variety that flowers somewhere in this time period as many websites give different estimates. The plants need to be available to buy online ideally grown in 2+ liter pots and flower around the same time. Has anyone had any experience with a white and/or violet lavender variety that flowers relatively early?
So far I've identified Lavandula angustifolia 'Arctic Snow' and L. X intermedia 'Edelweiss' as potential white lavenders but am unsure about the timings.
