It's a whole new day for lavender

A truly four-season lavender, Lavandula Phenomenal™ creates new landscaping possibilities!

At last, a lavender truly adapted to our hot, humid summers and tough winters. Lavandula Phenomenal is a groundbreaking hardy cultivar, a breeding breakthrough that every gardener will love.

Lavandula Phenomenal refuses to die back in winter, tolerates extreme heat and humidity without melting out, resists rot, and stands up to other foliar diseases that can make lavender a challenge to grow. In other words, it conquers most of the stumbling blocks that have held lavender back in gardens across the country.

On Lavandula Phenomenal, the bright blue blooms are held well above the silvery-green foliage, creating a canopy of color breathtaking even in a small planting. Both the flowers and the foliage are strongly fragrant. No wonder this plant was featured in a recent issue of Fine Gardening Magazine. Better Homes and Gardens even named it a "Must Grow Perennial."

Lavandula Phenomenal reaches about 24 to 32 inches high and wide, blooming heavily beginning in midsummer. Both the flowers and the foliage are intensely fragrant—sweet and long-lasting, ideal for sachets, dream pillows, potpourri, and of course indoor arrangements.

We heartily recommend Lavandula Phenomenal for borders, meadows, mass plantings, and containers in full sunshine and well-drained soil.

Lives up to name!!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have grown several types of Lavender and the plant rarely makes it past it's second year. Our hot, very humid North Mississippi summers take toll on it. It certainly didn't deter me from trying!! I planted 2 Phenomenal Lavender at my bee yard in a log inspired flower bed and 2 at my driveway by giant rocks. The driveway gets plenty of attention and the plant has tripled in size. The bee yard does not get that much attention, is planted in dry-ish sandy soil on side of hill and has still grown twice its original size. Both produced beautiful blooms held high from plant.Neither lost a beat during winter staying blue-green. I won't waste time in trying another type. If a plant is going to make it at my house it better be self sustaining after its first year. This is the Lavender to go with in Holly Springs, MS if you have hands off approach to flowers but still want WOW factor.
