Munstead is the lavender introduced by Gertrude Jekyll in 1916 and still among the most popular today. It is an English variety, forming a neat, bushy footstool of a plant, covered in ultra-fragrant blooms from midsummer until season's end. Evergreen, it is very robust and tolerant of adversity, ideal for today's thirsty gardens. 12 to 18 inches high; 18 to 24 inches long, with silvery-blue-green foliage that glints in the summer sun. Zones 5-9. Packet is 100 seeds.
