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!!!
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. Name: Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' Size: To 18 inches tall, 24 inches wide Zones: 5-8
