Growing lavender plants in the home garden
Hardy as far north as zone 4, the Phenomenal Lavender has proven to be cold hardy and experiences little winter die back. The Phenomenal Lavender is mounded shaped and shown to resist root rot and powdery mildews.
The Pink Perfume Lavender is smaller growing lavender that is just right for small yards. This drought tolerant plant produces rosy pink flowers from May through September that are sure to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.
The small growing Blue River Lavender is perfect for growing in containers that can be placed throughout your garden or patio for splashes of dark purple during the summer season.
“We're always excited to offer new gardening plants here at the nursery. But, the response for the new Phenomenal, Pink Perfume and Blue River has been amazing!” Notes Cheryl Jones, owner of Greenwood Nursery.
