I enjoy the smell and look of lavender. Lavender grows well and it makes a beautiful border. Dried lavender does help one sleep.

Is lavender not phenomenal enough? Who could resist something called "Phenomenal Lavender" that actually might survive in my northern zone???

I chose it be cause of its mosquito repellent quality, plant purple color, and the future size of the plant.

We put these all across the back of our house (afternoon sun in 8A), to provide food for honeybees.

Is your lavender culinary?
Cindy on Feb 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While it's primarily good for flower arrangements and oil, Phenomenal lavender can also be used as a culinary herb/ingredient.
Our average last frost date is April 15th, should I plant lavender before then and cover if frost is expected?
Marcia A on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would do exactly this, yes. As long as your ground is thawed and your soil is workable, you can plant. If your area is expecting any late-spring frost zaps, then frost sheets/covers will help protect any tender new growth that may have developed.
Will this lavender get woody, or does it die down to the ground like rubeckia or echinacea?
bluestocking64 on Feb 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 'Phenomenal' is a hardy variety that is not known for dieback like other types of lavender. It benefits from pruning to maintain a bushy appearance so that it doesn't become woody and sparse. You can lightly harvest a few mature stems of lavender as soon as it blooms, so you can enjoy the scent of the foliage and flowers and also encourage the plants to grow densely and continue to bloom.
Will it bloom all summer long?
Erin G on Apr 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The majority of the flowers bloom in late spring and early summer, and a few more (occasionally) appear through the remainder of the summer season.

Phenomenal Lavender
Planted mine this spring and didn't lose any. They have grown a little, but no flowers this year. I have them planted where they get afternoon sun and also excellent drainage. I expect good things next year.
