Lavandula angustifolia ‘Munstead’


English Lavender

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.315.100


Lavender is actually a low-growing shrub, native to the Mediterranean region. The fragrant flowers and foliage make it a favourite for herb gardens and in the perennial border. Will also grow fine in tubs or containers, but in colder regions the plants may then need shelter for the winter. This reliable, compact selection has grey-green foliage and bright lavender-blue flowers. Prune lightly in early spring, no harder than 4 inches. Lavender MUST have good drainage in order to avoid root rot problems. Consider growing in a raised bed or rock garden. Drought tolerant once established.
