Because its a natural bug repellent
Melissa C on Mar 24, 2017

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???

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.
Hi, I live in a 7b zone (Atlanta, Ga. area) the soil tends to be a red clay. During the HOT summer months and as of the last few years of drought; what type and instructions would you have for me to be successful for growing Lavender?
N C on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Amend your soil with organic matter - coco fiber bricks are great - to loosen up that clay. Lavender is pretty heat- and drought-tolerant. If you're interested, here is a link to the coco fiber bricks. They have done wonders with the clay-ey garden soil in my home garden. //www.starkbros.com/products/tools-and-supplies/soil-additives/coco-fiber-planting-medium
I would love to plant them around in my back yard that has full sun. Will the lavender be able to with stand a full hot sun?
Barbara B on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Lavender actually LOVES hot sun! Just keep it watered, but it is a even little drought-tolerant. It's a tough but beautiful plant!
Will this grow in Florida ?
Phil F on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Florida hardiness zones range from 8b to 10b, and Phenomenal Lavender is suitable for Zones 5-9, so it depends upon where you live in Florida. If you enter your ZIP code at the following link, you can find out what your exact zone is: //www.starkbros.com/zone-finder
How should I prepare this variety for winter? Should I cut them down to the ground and then cover them with mulch?
Roland H on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They do not need to be cut back to the ground, but you may want to prune any flower stems back so that the plant is at its natural, rounded shrub form. You should surround the root zone of the plants with straw or mulch for insulation if you are in an area with potentially harsh winters.
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.

Hardy Lavender
Very pleased with this lavender - we planted them last year and they have doubled in size already. The Pennsylvania winter didn't hurt the plants. Looking forward to them growing more this second year.

Beautiful!
The phenomenal lavender is true to its name! It's evergreen in zone 7b, and I am surprised by how quickly it has grown. I had gotten a different variety of lavender elsewhere first, and I wish I could replace them with this type. Beautiful and smells great -- not overpowering, but if you'll smell like lavender if you run your hand through it.

Please Overall
During the initial year of planting, the Lavender stays relatively small with little growth. But it has looked great this spring as it has come back out after the winner. It has filled out / grown.
