Lavandula x intermedia 'Phenomenal' was developed and introduced in 2012 by Peace Tree Farm. They are in the city of Kintnersville, PA, which is in Bucks County. It is a fantastic Lavender variety for the gardener to grow, especially for those of us in the northern U.S. zones. It can take the heat and can survive winters better than some other Lavenders. It is a highly sought after variety for Lavender lovers. Everywhere I looked, since 2012, it was always sold out before I could get it. I was so excited to finally find it last year at a local Meijer store in a one-gallon pot. You can find this wonderful Lavender through online sources, garden centers, and big box stores.

It has a lot going for it with all the pluses and looks beautiful overall with the combination of flower and foliage colors. Another "must-have" plant.
