There are 45 different lavender species and 450 varieties. The lavender plant is highly edible and belongs to the mint family. It is safe for humans and pets. Lavender has a unique flavor and calming effect so can be a good treat for guinea pigs and rabbits during times of stress and change. All lavender plants are edible but the English Lavenders(Lavender Augustifolia) is considered to be sweeter and better for culinary uses. Portuguese Lavender (Lavandula latifolia) is also called Spike lavender. This variety is more cold hardy and more pungent. Lavandins “(Lavandula X Intermedia) are a cross between English and Portuguese Lavender.
