Why plant Phenomenal Lavender?
Phenomenal™ Lavender is a treat for the eyes and the nose. This popular new Spirit features masses of purple blossoms over handsome, gray-green leaves for weeks in summer. The flowers and foliage offer up that classic, soothing Lavender scent; you’ll want to keep a plant or two near your door, so you’ll always have some close at hand for cutting. Grow it in a pot or in the ground—Phenomenal™ gets its name from its outstanding performance in the landscape. It may be the most adaptable Lavender ever sold!
Phenomenal™ Lavender was introduced by Lloyd Traven of Kintnersville, Pennsylvania. It appeared in 2007 as a chance mutation in a crop of Lavender called Grosso at his nursery, Peace Tree Farm. The new plant was smaller and more compact than the rest. After he planted it out into the landscape and observed it for a few years, Traven was thrilled with how well it performed. It didn’t die out in the middle, like many Lavenders tend to do in humid climates (they are adapted to very dry, Mediterranean-type summers). Phenomenal™ was born!
How to use Phenomenal Lavender in the landscape?
Add Phenomenal™ Lavender flower spikes to a jar of potpourri to fill a room in your house with its fresh yet calming fragrance. You can also make Lavender satchels to keep in your linen closet or dresser drawers or to give away as gifts.
Hardiness Zone: 4-8
How To Plant Phenomenal Lavender
Full sun and fast-draining soils are necessities for Phenomenal™ Lavender. Although it is more resilient than other Lavenders, it should be given the same care—or rather, tough love—that they prefer. These Spirits are adapted to low water, sandy or rocky soil, and low fertility. Spoiling them with rich soil and regular irrigation can lead to their demise. Do not trim Phenomenal™ Lavender in the fall, but wait until new growth appears in spring before doing any major pruning.
How To Water
Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Be sure to allow Lavender to dry down between watering's. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
Lavender should be pruned twice each year. Prune in spring just as the new growth starts to emerge. For this prune you can remove up to 50% of the plant but be sure each stem has some healthy green foliage remaining. Your second prune is a simple clean up job done just after flowering. Your light prune after blooming can remove the spent flower heads and tidy things up.
