Phenomenal™ Lavender

Lavandula augustifolia 'Niko' PP24193

At last, a lavender truly adapted to our hot, humid summers! The fragrant blue flowers and silvery-green foliage create a canopy of color breathtaking even in a small planting. Phenomenal blooms much sooner than other varieties, beginning in late spring through early summer. We heartily recommend it for borders, meadows and mass plantings.
