Growing ‘Phenomenal’ Lavender adds beauty and splendid scent to your garden, but the benefits of    growing this top new perennial don’t stop there. Phenomenal’s high oil content makes this plant an  asset in the kitchen, home and bath too.

 

The delightful taste and scent of fresh cut lavender make it perfect for use in flower arrangements, crafts or culinary adventures. Try Phenomenal as a marinade or rub for lamb, fish, chicken or pork. Create a refreshing lavender cocktail, lemonade or tea. Lavender pairs well with lemon for cupcakes, cookies and breads. Or, whip up some honey lavender ice cream to cap off a warm summer day.

 

When dried, Phenomenal’s flowers make a great addition to floral wreaths, potpourri, sachets or lavender wands. Phenomenal also makes wonderful lip balms, perfumes and soaps. The crafting options are endless.

 

Experts call Phenomenal a true performer in the garden. Hardy to Zone 5, it can survive the tough winters of the north. Phenomenal is also tolerant of heat and humidity, making it an excellent choice for gardeners in the south or on the west coast.

 

Lloyd and Candy Traven, owners of the Pennsylvanian wholesale greenhouse Peace Tree Farm, discovered and patented this stunning plant. The Traven’s selected from among thousands of lavenders propagated for Niko Christou of Carousel Farm Lavender, choosing this plant because of its amazing performance.
