Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 9
This is a Northern-hardy dwarf strain of English Lavender that bears thick racemes of blue flowers to 18 inches. The plant is preferred by landscapers because of its compact form, cold-hardiness, heat tolerance and great longevity. Plants prefer full sun and a dry to mesic, well-drained soil. Commonly grown in open fields or as landscape plants, mellowing the corners and curbs between buildings, driveways and sidewalks. They are tough to the sun but not particularly cold hardy, and should be trimmed back in the fall to prevent large amounts of snow from accumulating on them. Gardeners in northern climes will want to pot them up and bring them in for the winter.

Currently I’m concentrating on the Czech lavender which I find to be superior to the munstead. The Czech lavender is available. r
I live in MN zone 4. Would these survive the winter if I trim them back?
Richo Cech –
hi lisa, these are listed from zone 4 to 9, you’re in. probably more significant to give a mineral mulch than whether its fall pruned or not. if you get significant snow load, fall pruning can save breakage. r
Thank you for the information. Average winters here we get around 55 to 60 inches of snow.
Would pruning be wise with the average snow fall?
Richo Cech –
yes, the pruning will prohibit breakage from snowload
