Lavandula angustifolia Munstead is a variety of lavender named after Munstead Wood, the garden of Gertrude Jekyll, a British horticulturalist and garden designer. Its a compact variety with densely packed spikes of flowers that are a bright blue-purple colour. The leaves are grey-green in colour and give off a beautiful lavender aroma if you brush past them, so theyre ideally suited to growing alongside a path or walkway. As it grows so dense and compact, you can trim this variety into a sphere for a stylish modern architectural look. After the flower fade, carefully prune back the flower stalks.
