It is the epitome of a lavender with a well-proportioned spike of lilac-blue flowers that are a softer more powdery colour than the deeper purple of Hidcote Lavender and that distinctive scent that is now part of our olfactory culture. The leaves are aromatic too, slightly longer than Hidcote, and the same variable greyish green that can appear silvery in some lights. Pruned correctly, Munstead forms lots of shoots so that unlike most plants capable of surviving the hottest Mediterranean summers, it looks soft and fresh and verdant. This trait proves useful when planted close together because the leaves soon interweave to form a hedge with the flowers upright and coloured above like a layer of purple gauze over a silver petticoat.
