Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead'
|Description||A rugged yet beautiful compact evergreen shrub with mounding, aromatic, gray foliage and an abundance of fragrant, rich lavender-colored flower spikes. Commonly used for perfumes, sachets, and oils. Dried sprigs will deter insects when placed in a closet or room. Gorgeous in perennial borders, herb gardens, rock gardens, and mass plantings.|
|Watering||Let soil go almost dry between waterings.|
|Mature Size||Slowly reaches 12 to 18 in. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||A superior plant for hot, dry slopes and banks. Rugged enough for rock gardens in warm climates and natural rocky outcroppings where it is likely to naturalize. Exceptional component of Mediterranean style gardens both formal and casual. With similar requirements as western natives, it is suitable for xeriscape or wild gardens in dry climates. Suited to traditional mixed borders with perennials and flowering shrubs. Performs in large artistic pots and particularly beautiful in classical style with antique finish.|
|Companion Plants||Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Rose (Rosa); Coneflower (Echinacea); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum)|
|Care||Thrives in lean, loose, fast-draining, slightly alkaline soil; avoid heavy, soggy soils. Plant with crowns slightly above soil level. Water regularly during the first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Prune back by one-half after flowering to encourage rebloom.|
