"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."

— Cynthia

Lavandula x intermedia Phenomenal (US PP24,193)

  • Lavender Phenomenal is a hardy lavender developed and introduced by Peace Tree Farm in 2012.
  • Named a 'Must-Grow Perennial' for 2013 by Better Homes & Gardens.

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.
