Introduced in 1916, ‘Munstead’ was named for Munstead Woods in England where it was a favorite of renowned garden designer, writer, and artist, Gertrude Jekyll. ‘Munstead’ flowers earlier than other lavenders and stays compact. English lavenders are preferred for culinary uses and oils. Heat- and drought-tolerant plants attract pollinators. Add the flowers to a simple syrup to make craft cocktails/mocktails or lavender lemonade. Bake into bread, cookies, or scones, and flavor jellies. Perennial in USDA zones 5-9.
