    Lavandula x intermedia 'Phenomenal'

    PHENOMENAL is right! This latest lavender introduction is a winner all around. Tough enough to handle harsh winters as well as wilting humidity. This is one great lavender with great genetics ~ a successful cross between angustifolia types and French lavenders. Both cold hardy and tolerant of humidity.

    But, as we all know, nothing is perfect so please remember that this lavender, like ALL lavenders, need well draining soil.

    Lavender 'Phenomenal' has so much going for it, beyond its adaptable nature. It has gorgeous silvery foliage, lovely deep purple flowers on 5" spikes and it smells GREAT! This highly fragrant lavender is known for its high concentration of essential oils.

    This is a lovely plant in the garden ~ a medium grower with a compact habit. According to Southern Living, this lavender has been tested all over the South, and has been met with rave reviews.

    'Phenomenal' Lavender Uses

    Wonderful for herb sachets and pillows, potpourri and fresh or dried arrangements, 'Phenomenal' is a wonderful herb for cooking as well. You can add Lavender to your favorite summer drinks and salads or to lend a wonderfully light flavor to fish, meat or soups.

    A great choice for pots and container, it has a compact habit and combines well with an accent plant. Deadheading will keep this fragrant herb blooming continuously from spring through summer.

    Important Lavender Tips:

    • Well drained soil - lavenders will not tolerate poor drainage so add sand if you need to improve the quality of your soil. Most lavender 'deaths' occur because of wet roots. An alkaline soil is best.
    • They cannot tolerate humidity: damp, still air makes them susceptible to fungus ailments
    • Lavenders need full sun- 6 to 8 hours of sunshine for these Mediterranean natives
  • Lavendula x intermedia 'Phenomenal'

    Characteristics: This perfect hardy lavender works well in harsh winters and humid summers. Perennial in zones 5-9, 'Phenomenal' is a wonderful addition to any landscape or container garden

    Light: 'Phenomenal' prefers full sun

    Water: Water adequately, but not excessively, as Lavenders do not do well when over watered. Highly susceptible to root rot and disease if they get too moist for too long, make sure to water the soil, not the plant for best results.

    Soil:Drainage is the biggest factor when considering soil. Lavenders will tolerate a lot- drought, salt, wind and slopes, but they will not deal well with poor drainage and moist soil! Give them loamy soil with a pH of 7 to 8.5.

    Use: Fresh'Phenomenal' blooms are perfect for arrangements, both fresh or dried. This also makes a relaxing and rejuvenating bath soak. T

    Extras: This low maintenance, shrubby herb can be planted along hillsides to reduce erosion!
