Plant mutation

Zone U.K. | Rachel_2327z added on May 5, 2016 | Answered

My lavender has sprouted this early bloom, entirely white, looks healthy, the picture was taken on 5th of May, the bloom has no scent. Is it a sport? Typical blooms are a medium purple with he typical scent - I think this is the common variety of lavender which usually blooms much later in the summer. The plant is about 15 years old, grown in a back garden in a pot, and has never done this before! And no ... These aren't insect eggs, although at first I thought they were! Thanks for any thoughts.

We did not receive the image.

You are likely growing a hybrid variety of Lavender.
Your plant may have reverted back to a cross cultivator.
