Lavandula augustifolia - Lavender - "Munstead"      

This lavender was first planted in Welcome, near the back center on June 17, 2007. It was bought at Frerich’s. On August 11, the plant was moved to BBB. It had lost all flowers, and appeared to have stopped growing. I think the soil may have been too wet there in Welcome. A second larger Lavender plant was bought at Home Depot and planted August 19, 2007 with the smaller plant in BBB.
April 20, 2008 – The Munstead Lavender plants look great. They actually grew over the winter.

This planting is in the Butterfly - Bee - Bird garden .

Purchased from Frerich's Farm
