Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead'
'English lavender'from £4.50
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.
Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and we also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
