Plant Type: Perennials

Lavender ‘Phenomenal’ is an excellent 2012 introduction from Peace Tree Farm, in Kintnersville, PA. Also know as ‘Niki’, this lavender began its life as an exceptional seedling from Lavandula ‘Grosso’. Reviews report Lavandula ‘Phenomenal’ the absolute best lavender ever produced. In trials, Phenomenal lavender has withstood heat and humidity better than any other Lavandula x intermedia. Although it is tough, wet soils in the heat of summer are still deadly. Lavandula ‘Phenomenal’ also has great winter survivability in cold climates, without winter dieback problems of other lavenders. Lavandula ‘Phenomenal’ makes a 30″ tall x 3′ wide clump, of symmetrically arranged stems, showcasing fragrant silver foliage. The clumps are topped in midsummer with 5″ lavender flowers at the end of each spike, giving the clump a 5′ wide spread. This plant is incredible.
