It’s here! A truly cold hardy heat loving lavender that takes what winter can throw at it and keeps its lovely sage colored silvery green foliage all winter long. Most gardeners grow lavender for its fragrant flower spikes, but you are going to enjoy the fragrant foliage on this one as well as the winter-long interest it will provide you. Hardy well into the upper tier of the Lower 48 states, and persisting in all but the hottest portions of the South, gardeners everywhere will enjoy this amazingly tough but beautiful cross of English and Portuguese lavender.

Bright blue/purple flower spikes approaching 5 inches in length wave on top of silvery green foliage and look absolutely stunning when massed out in your landscape or garden bed. They provide an incredible backdrop for bright colored perennials as well (think poppies and perennial phlox). Native to countries that border the Mediterranean Sea, lavender grows in the mountainous regions in dry, relatively poor soils in Zones 4 to 9. With careful location selection, you, too, can grow lavender successfully.

Phenomenal Lavender Care

Because of this beautiful cultivar’s parentage, Phenomenal is an easy to care for perennial plant. With its fire and ice kind of habitat tolerance, you can now plant in regions that have hot humid summers just as easily as you can plant it in some of the toughest winter regions. Plant this heat lover in full sun for best results. Well draining soil is a must for lavender. It will not tolerate soggy soil. Sandy soil that is not particularly fertile will yield the best results. Water sparingly when rainfall is insufficient. Fertilization is generally not needed, but a light top dressing of compost will be all you need if you insist. Lavender prefers a sweet soil, so amend acidic soils with lime to reach a neutral to alkaline soil pH. Avoid disturbing lavender once established as they do not care to be moved. If you must move them, be sure to include as much of the soil surrounding the roots as possible for best results.

Deadheading is not needed to have plenty of blooms on this lavender, but removing old spent flower spikes may result in a renewed flush of flowers later in the season. You will not be able to resist harvesting stems of lavender flowers to bring indoors to enjoy, or to dry for potpourri to extend the beautiful fragrance into your home all season. You will not need to prune lavender, but if you feel you must, prune to shape them after the new growth starts in the spring and do not prune into the older wood. Lavender occasionally gets unsightly with its woody stems, you may prune back up to â…“ of plant volume once every three years to improve their visual appearance.

Phenomenal Lavender Spacing

Spacing lavender properly is key to good plant health. Growing up to 30 inches tall and spreading a phenomenal 54 inches wide, give it 48 to 54 inches of room to allow proper air circulation and reduce any chances of fungal diseases. Deer and rabbits typically will not browse on lavender due to its strong essential oil production. Plant in herb gardens, rock gardens and cottage gardens for an informal look, or mass out in your landscape border for a phenomenal display.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
