Lavender Munstead is a many-branched, somewhat woody perennial plant growing to 15 inches tall. The narrow leaves are about 2 inches long and have a pleasing gray-green color. The small heavily fragrant lavender flowers are borne on long-stemmed, slender spikes. Cut faded whole flower spikes when the first flowers begin to open, and dry. It is used most often in sachets in the home and in perfumes.
