Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead'
'English lavender'from £6.00
PBR. A deciduous sub-shrub with aromatic, silver-grey leaves and upright spikes of tiny, violet-blue flowers on white stems in late summer and early autumn. Aug-Sep. H60cm S60cm.
Requires a very well-drained, preferably poor soil in full sun. Ideal for sandy conditions and is drought tolerant. Best cut to the ground in spring to encourage strong new growth. This is a shorter-growing variety, so is a good choice if space is limited or you find the taller varieties get too floppy. It makes a real impact planted en masse alongside a path, where the sage-like fragrance of its leaves can be appreciated. Makes a wonderful companion to all kinds of late-summer ornamental grasses and perennials.
