(aka: Lavandula 'Niko') Lavandula 'Phenomenal' is a 2012 introduction from our friends at Peace Tree Farms that began its life as an exceptional sport (originally reported to us as a seedling) from Lavandula 'Grosso'. Reviews from around the country have called Lavandula 'Phenomenal' the best lavender ever produced. In our trials, 'Phenomenal' lavender has withstood heat and humidity better than any other Lavandula x intermedia we've trialed. That said, wet soils in the heat of summer are still deadly. Lavandula 'Phenomenal' also has great winter survivability in cold climates without the winter dieback problems of other lavender clones. For us, Lavandula 'Phenomenal' makes a 30" tall x 3' wide clump of symmetrically arranged stems, clothed in fragrant silver foliage. The clumps are topped in midsummer with 5" spikes of lavender flowers, giving the clump a 5' wide spread...simply delightful!
