A Lavender leopard gecko morph is currently considered polygenic, and therefore a line bred morph. This fact, combined with the tendency of many young lavenders to lose their colour as they mature, makes them hard to breed and to improve. 
In 2003, JMGReptile set out to create a Lavender line. It was initiated by breeding Stripes to Normals that showed varying amounts of Lavender coloring. The geckos that showed the most lavender were bred back to each other. This process was repeated until the desired look was obtained.
There are several breeders in US and Europe working on lavender projects with different genetic backgrounds. 
Lavender refers to leopard geckos who show a light violet body colour called “lavender”. They can be combined with many different colours and patterns.
