Lavender angustifolia ‘Munstead’ is a compact, early-flowering English lavender cultivar that was first introduced into commerce in 1916. It is a semi-woody perennial that typically grows to 50cm tall and as wide. Lavender blue flowers appear in terminal spikes in late spring well into summer. Square stems are clad with very narrow, opposite or whorled, green-gray leaves (to 2” long) that are evergreen in warm winter climates. Both foliage and flowers are highly aromatic. English lavender species plants have been mainstays of herb gardens for many years.
