Lavandula intermedia Phenomenal Culinary Lavender

Acclaimed across the U.S. for its elegant, rounded habit and exceptional tolerance for heat and colder Winters, this prolifically blooming lavender was introduced by our friends at Peace Tree Farms. Its symmetrically arranged stems are topped by 5” spikes of fragrant lavender blooms June thru October, reaching an ultimate size of 3-4’ tall x 3-4’ wide. ‘Phenomenal’ is almost ridiculously indestructible, shrugging off extreme cold, humidity, and disease with true panache. Grow lavenders in well-drained infertile soil (no clay) and cut back by 1/2 to 2/3 immediately after bloom to keep them from getting scraggly. Bees and butterflies, cut flowers, aromatherapy and sachets! Deer resistant.
