Phenomenal: the Lavender Plant that Changed the Whole Growing Game
24 - 32” Tall x 24 - 32” Wide. Phenomenal® Lavender PP#24193 caused an audible wave of excitement to pass over the US the day it was introduced! Finally, a rugged and hardy lavender that can handle both harsh winters and taxing humidity with grace. Phenomenal® has made lavender an accessible garden plant for many who thought they could never grow this treasured perennial.
While it does exhibit resistance to humidity-related diseases such as root rot and fungal infections, Phenomenal®, like other lavenders, should not be planted in wet or slow-draining soils. Lavender gardeners will always have the best luck with full sun and gritty soil (or fast-draining container mixes). This highly-fragrant, deer-proof lavender works beautifully when sited along walkways, paths, fence lines, and other property borders, as long as conditions allow. As an edible lavender, it's also a charming addition to veggie gardens and herb knots. For detailed planting and care instructions, visit How to Grow Lavender.
Phenomenal® is known for its silvery foliage and deep-blue to purple 5” flower spikes. Its flowers are exceptionally beautiful, making it a great addition to centerpieces and bouquets. When in bloom, this plant’s compact growth habit begins to expand outward, reaching up to a 32" x 32" spread. Due to its color and scent, butterflies and bees are very attracted to Phenomenal®, making it a popular choice for pollinator gardens.
With its elevated levels of essential oil, Phenomenal® Lavender is a great choice for creating dried arrangements, sachets & potpourris, soap making, and other crafts.
