Disappointed in Chester county pa
I bought 6 plants as a trial and planted them in a new raised bed, well drained, facing south with no shade. All 6 seemed to setts in well then suddenly one died, for no apparent reason in September and another is on its way out. The other 4 are fine. Very poor performance for a plant bred for PA. I am an experienced Gardener and expect more given the price (and small size) of these plants when ordered. Disappointing and would not recommend them

Slow growth, no bloom
Planted 2 of these in containers in direct sun-- one plant died, the 2nd pant survived but no blooms at all. Replanting and relocating this year. Hoping for better results.

Goes Down Hill Fast
I purchased 20 of these. The whole first batch died within a week of receiving them.
We had the insurance, so they were replaced.
The second batch of 20 are doing better, but 2 look pretty bad. Not sure if they will make it.
I'm not sure why these are called hardy lavenders since they die so easily. You have to treat them with kid gloves and hope for the best.
I've very careful about not over watering them, but they just look like the heat is too much for them. The ones that have died on us look like they burned up from the heat. So much for being a good plant for zone 8.

Very Satisfied Customer
I received this plant in a box with two other plants. Though it seems to be crushed a little, it has bounced back very well. It was only about 2" tall when I received it, it has double in size- seems to be fast growing (beginning of August) Might see lavender this year. I placed it in a 7' circular garden I have with a Ever Red Loropetalum in the middle, around it I have the Double Knock Out Red Rose, 2 Double Knock Out Sunny Yellow Rose, and The Lavender. All are doing Well.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Phenomenal™ Lavender


Phenomenal™ Lavender Planting Diretions

Whether it be a garden or in a pot, lavender (Lavandula intermedia 'Phenomenal’) is a wonderful perennial plant that has multiple uses in the home and for your landscape. It is known for attracting butterflies and other pollinators while repelling unwanted guests such as deer with its heavenly scent. Lavender is fairly low maintenance, only needing small amounts of water to really thrive as it is quite drought tolerant. It will grow well in USDA zones 5-9 but also can be successfully grown in pots if you’re in an area that is too hot or cold to add to your garden. It will mature to a height/width of about 1-3 feet and make for a great focal point.

 

Choosing a location: Lavender will perform best if planted in a full sun location with a well draining soil whether in a pot, raised bed or garden. It prefers a more alkaline soil with a pH of around 6.5-7.3 so adding some lime to your soil will assist in maintaining the pH level. Set them 12-18 inches apart if planting multiple lavenders.

 

Planting Directions (in ground):
1) Once you have located a good spot where your lavender will receive at least 6 hours of sun every day, it’s time to prep your soil for proper growth. If you have an excess amount of clay, a slightly raised bed will work best for your plant(s).
2) Lavender likes dry soil conditions below and above ground. Dig your hole so it is just big enough for the root system. Drainage is essential so maybe work some 1 inch stones into the planting area to avoid over watering. A couple of handfuls of stones should be the perfect amount to add.
3) If you have very poor soil then blend together equal parts of well composted manure, lime and bone meal. Add about a ½ cup to the bottom of the hole and mix it in. This will give the lavender a healthy start while the lime will keep the pH in the proper range.
4) Gently loosen the soil and knock the plant from its container taking care not to damage the root system. Comb the roots lightly with your hands to help spread the roots out a bit.
5) Backfill the hole lightly tamping the soil to prevent air pockets from forming.

 

Planting Directions (potted):
1) Provide your lavender a pot that allows lots of room for it to grow. A good rule of “green thumb” is to go about 2 pot sizes larger than what it initially came in to get started.
2) A well draining, sandy potting mix (such as succulent mix) is most preferred. Fill the pot about ¾ of the way full and add a tablespoon of lime to make the soil pH a bit more alkaline.
3) Place your lavender in the pot and fill with the soil leaving a couple inches from the rim of the pot. Gently firm down the soil to avoid air pockets from forming. The crown of the lavender should stick about 1 inch above the soil.
4) Give the potted plant a good drink of water and add a couple inch layer of mulch to assist with retaining the soil moisture.
5) Place your newly potted lavender plant in a spot where it will receive at least six hours of direct sun every day. A good South facing window sheltered from the wind should be sufficient.

 

Watering (in ground): Good air circulation and drainage is a must. Avoid excessive moisture by allowing the soil to dry out a bit in between waterings. When there is a lot of heat and humidity, fungus can move in quickly if the soil retains too much moisture. One deep watering each week should suffice but to be sure, stick your index finger into the surrounding soil down to a depth of a couple inches. Feel around for moisture, if there is still some present, leave the plant be. If it feels like it has started to dry out and become sandy-like, give it a good watering.

 

Watering (potted): Once your lavender has become more established it will be quite drought tolerant but is more floriferous and bigger with regular waterings. The best way to determine if you need to water your potted lavender is to use your index finger. Stick it into the potting soil and if it feels dry, add just enough water to where you see it escaping the drainage holes and stop.

 

Fertilizing (in ground): Lavender is one of those special circumstances that actually likes nutrient poor soil. Excessive fertilizing may cause the plant to grow more foliage and inhibit bloom growth. This is a real issue especially if attempting to fertilize with something rich in nitrogen. Too much nitrogen can actually kill the plant. The best time for fertilizing your lavender is in the spring at the start of the growing season. Do not fertilize any other time as this can lead to tender growth that will die off in the winter season. About an inch of good compost around the plant will provide plenty of nutrients for some time to come. Another method is to use a slow release fertilizer but once you’ve done it, LEAVE IT ALONE. Again, excessive fertilizing can only lead to negative results.

Fertilizing (potted): A weekly feeding with a liquid fertilizer will improve the flower color as well as encourage prolific flowering.


Pruning (in ground): 
Right after the coldest part of your winter season is over will be the ideal time to prune your lavender plant. Proper pruning at this time is removing a ⅓ of the foliage leaving about 2-3 inches of soft, green foliage but avoid cutting the “woody” portion of the plant. This will help the lavender grow more full and rounded while avoiding “sprawling” which makes the stems split and break. A handful of the compost, lime and bone meal blend (mentioned in the planting directions section) around the base of the plant at this time will be beneficial.

 

Pruning (potted): In the early spring when the green leaves are just starting to come from the base of the plant, cut about a ⅓ off the top of each lavender stem. You can also lightly prune in the summer to maintain a desired shape or cut back vigorous stems that seem out of place amongst the rest.

 

Harvesting lavender flowers: Harvesting is an essential part of the process of getting the best out of your lavender plant. The ideal time to harvest is when the bottom flowers of the stems have just barely started to open. This is the peak time for the color and scent of the blooms. Make your cut at at the base of the stems close to the foliage and then bundle them. You can band multiple stems together and then hang them to dry for roughly two weeks in a dry, dark and hot location such as a storage closet or attic.

 

Lavender has so many different applications regarding its use. Teas, aromatherapy, medicinal use, cooking and so much more. Since it can be successfully stored, it can be used at any time of the year. A fine addition to your home and garden.

I enjoy having lavender growing both for the scent and the bug repellent This is a perennial plant which supposedly will regrow next year. If it does I will replant into a bigger pot. The lavender does keep the spiders and flying insects away from my window and door which is right near where the plant is outside.

I live in zone 8. Can I plant in my vegetable garden or should I keep in pots on my porch?In the past I have tried to plant in the garden w/o success but, the plant came from a local store.BTW my garden gets full daily sunlight so, do I give full sunlight ?
Jody S on Apr 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased 4 of these; I live in zone 9. I put one in a pot and 3 in the ground in a raised garden with rich soil. We've had a ongoing drought this year. One of mine is staying green and growing; I've had to water it by hand. No flowers yet. This is the first lavender plant that has grown for me in the 26 years since I have been trying to grow lavender in this yard, from local purchases and online suppliers. Try planting them in several places to see what your plants like; full sunlight in the south is not like full sunlight in other states. Good luck!

Lynn C on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine have done well in full to partial sun. I have had them before in full sun and they don't do as well, now they get full sun half the day then filtered sun the remainder. Once established they are more tolerant. Most of the ones I have lost have been during their first year.
I live in Zone 4 (MN), if i plant this in a container and store in the garage through winter, will it survive?
Angela P on Apr 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in zone 9 so I can not answer your question. However, I did purchase four of these Lavender plants last spring. I live in Sequim, WA., which is the Lavender capital and they are wonderful . . . A very compact and full plant. We had a harsh winter for our area with lots of snow and they are still strong and I know they will again bring beautiful lavender color to my garden. Mine are planted in the ground so they deal with whatever the weather will be and seem to be a very strong plant. I would give it a try if I were living in zone 4 . . . wishing you enjoyment in your garden.
Does this plant attract bees or wasps?
Nancy G on Apr 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have seen the pollinator bees on the flowers, but no wasps.
Do they spread?
Renee O on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in Sequim, WA which is the lavender capital within the state of Washington. Huge festivals every year. I purchased four (4) of the Phenomenal Lavender when we first moved to Sequim in August or September of 2015 so they are just now showing GREAT signs of growth . . full sun . . . Mine were small when I received them and they have at least doubled in size. Showing strong stock for the lavender to grow. I already have 19 large lavender bushes which have been here for years and I just wanted to see if these would be nicer than the ones I already have . . . so far this year I would say they will be strong and more full . . as far as the spread they seem to me to be growing width almost as much as they have in height. I have a good feeling about these specific plants. Hope some of this information helps. Thank you!
