18-24" tall x 24-30" wide. Color your garden with the dark blue calyxes and violet-blue corollas of Lavandula angustifolia ‘Munstead Violet’ (English Lavender). The foliage matures to a nice silver-gray and the fragrance is sweet but not strong. A bee favorite, our chief horticulturist, David Salman, discovered the plant as a chance seedling in a Santa Fe, NM garden. 'Munstead Violet' has the darkest colored flowers of any of the English lavender cultivars, making this High Country Gardens exclusive one of our favorite varieties.
