Tips for Growing Lavender
Lavender are sun-loving plants that thrive in hot weather and grow best in arid climates. Lavender plants will be taller and wider in mild winter, hot summer climates. The same varieties when grown in cold (zone 5-6) winter climates tend to be more compact. Lavender plants require two-to-three growing seasons to reach mature size.
These perennials are a superb choice for the drought-resistant garden, doing best in the drier parts of the US like the Great Plains, Intermountain West and West Coast (which has a true Mediterranean climate (wet winters and dry summers). In the Mid-West and Eastern US, sandy soils are a must, and planting on a slope or in a raised bed provides optimum drainage. For the southern US with hot, humid heat, Spanish Lavender (Lavandula stoechas) is the best choice. For large growing Lavender, we recommend French Lavender or hybrid Lavender (Lavandula intermedia) varieties. The key is to make sure you choose a variety with sufficient winter cold hardiness for your region. (‘Vera’ and ‘Pastor’s Pride’ are among the most cold hardy.) Yet with proper soil preparation, and planting site selection, Lavender can also thrive in moister, more humid climates like the Mid-West, East Coast and Mid-Atlantic states. Lavender Phenomenal does particularly well in areas with more moisture and humidity.

Beautiful dark purple

About Me Master Gardener
See all my reviews
I got an order last spring that included the Munstead Lavender. It is now about 10" high and is a gorgeous dark purple. One of them didn't make it but this one is very happy. I wish I had planted it where I could see it better because it is such a pretty purple.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I plant it and gave it some water and that is the work you will do with this Lavender. Just keep giving it some water and your off.

Not up to par
from Liberty, IN
Ordered 3 variety (21 plants total) of lavender from High Garden. Two (Buena & Grosso), while small starts, were healthy and vigorous. The Munstead were extra small, and did not have a healthy vigorous appearance.
