In the Middle Ages, Lavender was a chief ingredient in the famous “Four Thieves” vinegar, and today no classic sachet or potpourri would be complete without it.
We use Lavenders in every garden we design. Dependable and drought tolerant, their strikingly handsome flowers, whether white or blue, pink, violet or purple, offer a heady aroma and an upright spiky look, while the foliage forms a pleasing mound during the off season. In the herb garden, border or rockery, they combine well with grasses, perennials or other shrubs. If the plants are cut back in late June, many cultivars will produce a second bloom in autumn.
This remarkable 2012 introduction from Peace Tree Farms is being touted as one of the best Lavenders on the market after undergoing extensive trialling throughout the country. A Lavandula ‘Grosso’ offspring, it’s large, uniform habit exhibits exceptional winter hardiness, an impressive ability to withstand heat and humidity plus excellent disease resistance. Symmetrically arranged, staunch upright stems cloaked in attractive silver-green foliage bolster a fragrant showing of 5 in. long rich blue-violet spikes atop lengthy flower stalks. Splendid in dried or fresh bouquets, ‘Phenomenal’ can be hedged or added to perennial borders and Mediterranean plantings, while its heavily scented leaves and blooms produce high quality oil and culinary seasonings.
