"This plant is KILLER in the garden! A pollinator magnet, Lavender 'Phenomenal' is covered in honeybees in the summer -- it buzzes with action when the flowers are in bloom."
With over 30 years of herb and vegetable growing experience, Peace Tree Farm has never seen a lavender as excellent a performer as 'Phenomenal'.
One of the hardiest lavenders seen throughout Europe and the United States, 'Phenomenal' has exceptional winter survival, as it does not have the winter die back that other varieties like Munstead and Hidcote commonly demonstrate.
Lavender 'Phenomenal' has also shown tolerance to extreme heat and humidity, and is resistant to common root and foliar diseases. To quote Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in Raleigh, NC, "In our trials, Phenomenal lavender has withstood heat and humidity better than any other Lavandula x intermedia we've trialed. That being said, wet soils in the heat of summer are still deadly."
Most commonly popular for its silvery foliage and consistent growth with uniform, mounding habit, 'Phenomenal' has an elegant flower presentation and fragrance, perfect for fresh and dried arrangements and oil uses.
Both ornamental and edible, Lavender 'Phenomenal' is a deer-proof variety that can be enjoyed in the garden and in the home year-round.
