Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead'
Early, pale-purple flowers. Hardier than most Lavenders and compact. Light purple flowers appear between July and September.
Popular woody herb with a legendary fragrance derived from its slender, lavender-purple flower spikes. It is stiff, narrow, grayish leaves and is drought-tolerant. Often used as a low hedge or edging. Lavender needs good drainage, and should not be pruned after midsummer. Best to mulch each winter.
