Characteristics: This English dwarf variety may have a smaller stature, but it packs a ton of profuse, fragrant blooms into one plant. Perennial in zones 5-9, 'Munstead' is a terrific medicinal and culinary herb.
Light: 'Munstead' prefers full sun
Water: Water adequately, but not excessively, as Lavenders do not do well when over watered. Highly susceptible to root rot and disease if they get too moist for too long, make sure to water the soil, not the plant for best results.
Soil:Good drainage is the biggest factor when considering soil. Lavenders will tolerate a lot- drought, salt, wind and slopes, but they will not deal well with poor drainage and moist soil! Give them loamy soil with a pH of 7 to 8.5.
Use: Fresh'Munstead' blooms can be steeped in hot water and then cooled for application to sun burned, or damaged skin. This also makes a relaxing and rejuvenating bath soak. Try some Lavender in your next culinary masterpiece, or pot it for indoor use!
Extras: This low maintenance, shrubby herb can be planted along hillsides to reduce erosion!
