This selection debuted to rave reviews for its winter hardiness as well as heat and humidity tolerance. Combined with its mounding habit and lovely fragrance, 'Phenomenal' is an excellent performer with strong, evenly branching stems. Used in Europe for municipal plantings due to its vigorous nature.

Many gardeners grow Lavender for its fragrance, but the genus includes several excellent garden plants that should be more widely used for their midsummer beauty and resistance to deer, heat, and drought. The cool, gray-green foliage provides a perfect backdrop for the slender, arching flower stems. Some varieties are small, others tall, but they all prefer well-drained, sweet soil and full sun. Plant them in masses or as small hedges, and you'll find that they are attractive and useful long after the spent flowers have been clipped off.
