A new Lavender hits the market

Peace Tree Farm and Cultivaris introduced Lavender ‘Phenomenal,’ a new intermedia type lavender to the horticulture market. 

The companies describe the plant as hardy to Zone 5, with a winter survival and overall performance that surpasses all other hardy lavenders.

“Phenomenal lives up to its name with its dense, bushy habit and spectacular performance,” said Lloyd Traven of Peace Tree Farm. Lloyd, with his wife Candy, discovered ‘Phenomenal’ while propagating thousands of lavenders for Carousel Farm Lavender from an intermedia selection made by Niko Christou. The uniform growth habit makes ‘Phenomenal’ well suited for bench-run production that requires little maintenance after transplanting, according to the company.
