Lavendula angustifolia is one of the richest in essential oils, meaning more fragrance power both fresh and dried, and 'munstead' has a more compact habit and earlier blooming lavender flowers. Fresh flowers can be crystallized and used in candies and cakes; dried flowers are used in potpourri and sachets; oils are used in creams and perfumes. And, these are only some of the more common uses -- imagination can create endless more. An evergreen perennial, 'munstead' lavender has a subtle blue-green coloring and a sweet fragrance. Reaching 12 to 18 in. high and 10 to 15 in. wide, it boasts 2 in., linear, downy grey leaves on strong stems. Semi-woody stalks of lavender flowers grow up to 12 in. tall.
