Buy Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' lavender: A compact variety with blue-purple flowers

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A compact lavender, named after Gertrude Jekyll's garden at Munstead Wood. It produces dense spikes of fragrant, bluish-purple summer flowers above slender, aromatic, grey-green leaves. This is a lovely lavender for edging paths and borders; the aromatic foliage perfumes the air if you brush against it. It also works well in a gravel garden, or clipped into a formal sphere for a contemporary look. The flower-spikes are highly attractive to bees and other nectar-loving insects.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded. Carefully trim back in April, taking care not to cut into old wood.

I was delighted with my purchase and would buy again


I bought these plants to replace a old lavender edge - they took well and provided an excellent show I was delighted with my purchase- the plants were healthy , easy to plant and ticked all the boxes Crocus is my come to nursery for quality.




Can't go wrong with a lavender!


I got this lavender for the bee population. I've had it 2 summers now and it has been a fantastic success each time. I even took clippings off last year's and managed to get 1 to grow.




Crocus is always my 'go to' for online plants


Strong healthy plants. Packaging for transporting second to none.

Nice plant, came through the very hot summer 2018 ok


Used for a small raised front flower bed - gets very hot during the early part of the day. Planted during the very hot summer 2018 and has survived well. Flowered nicely after planting. Good size plants delivered and in good health.




Good healthy plants


Planted in raised beds as we are on heavy clay, have grown well and flowered well - very pleased. Great scent and bees love them too.

I have a terracotta pot 54cm diameter x 56cm high which I wish to plant the munstead lavender in. How many of the plants in 2 litre pots will I need?


It really depends on the effect you are trying to create. Each palnt has an eventual spread of around 60cm, however if you want a more immediate effect, you could plant 3 or 5 plants in the pot.


We wish to grow a small hedge of lavender, length 14m, of 2 different type of Lavender. The height ideally would be a max of 450mm. Could you advise which lavenders would be good matches, particularly to attract bess? How many plants would we need, what spacing, when would be ideal to plant and what cost? Thanks


Hello, 45cm is quite small for lavenders, however if you want to have 2 different ones, you could choose between 'Munstead', 'Little Lady', 'Blue Cushion' and 'Elizabeth' - please click on the links below to go straight to them. As for planting distances, they can be spaced at 25-30cm intervals, and they can be planted at any time of the year, provided the ground is not frozen. Elizabeth Little Lady Blue Cushion Musntead

Make a 'tussie-mussie' or posy of flowers
