Lavender

Lavandula x intermedia 'Phenomenal (r)' PP24,193

This selection forms a bushy mound of silver foliage, with long spikes of purple-blue flowers.

The hybrid Lavenders are sometimes known as Lavandin. They generally flower in midsummer, a little later than the English types. This selection forms a bushy mound of silver foliage, with long spikes of purple-blue flowers. Choose a location with excellent drainage. In regions with clay soils, a raised bed or rock garden will improve success greatly. Plants should be clipped back by half in spring. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for fresh cutting, this is an excellent Lavender selection for drying. Often repeat blooms in late summer or fall. Exceptional winter survival, as it does not have the winter die back that other varieties commonly demonstrate. Good tolerance to extreme heat and humidity, and resistant to common root and foliar diseases. Developed and introduced by Peace Tree Farm in 2012. USPP#24193: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
