'Munstead' English Lavender - Many gardeners call 'Munstead' their favorite lavender because the plant is quite compact, displays violet-purple flowers in mid- to late spring, and shows off attractive silvery foliage. Like 'Hidcote', it's known for its strong fragrance
Beautiful Munstead Lavender: I had all my lavender plants die last year from the extreme cold (I live near Columbus, Ohio). I replaced several of them, but it looks like I might have to buy more this year. I hope I don't have to give up on lavender!! It's one of my very favorite garden staples. The bees love it!!!
