Entomophilous pollination
In the wild, the hybridization of lavender species with different vegetation areas and flowering times is mostly made possible by cross-pollination linked to many insects, including bees. They, indeed, visit the flowers without any botanical discrimination, the different species providing them with both nectar and pollen. The layer of greasy matter that agglutinates the pollen of the lavender requires an external intervention for the pollination of the flower. Given the presence of nectar, this pollination is necessarily entomophilous (depending on insects).
