High performance Sensational! is an impressive, semi-evergreen woody perennial. All parts of this beauty proffer an unforgettable, exquisitely sweet perfume through your landscape.

This robust choice isn't "wimpy", but is rather much sturdier than old-fashioned Lavender varieties. Every feature is thicker, from the blooms themselves to the rugged flower spikes, stems and broad leaves.

Aromatic blue-purple flower spikes are held straight and strong from the center of the mounded foliage. The bloom is bigger, and there are a plethora of blooms per spike.

Branching flower spikes are a very welcome feature of this reblooming variety. After all, more branches mean more flowers!

Sensational! simply looks more lush and full than other options. Compact, but substantial foliage develops into an eye-catching mound of iced tones to cool you down in the heat of summertime.

Not only do the details look broad and strong; but the plant itself displays disease resistance. Sensational! makes it easy for beginning gardeners to enjoy an annual harvest of Lavender.

Grow your own and you'll have plenty of material on hand for cut flower arrangements. Try your hand making other homespun Lavender crafts.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant them in full sun, where they'll receive at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. Well-draining soil is another must...elevate your planting if you need to improve drainage.

Sensation! is a heat, humidity and cold tolerant rock garden staple.

Extend their life with excellent air circulation. Keep them in sharply drained, poor soil that sheds water quickly, and avoid mulch at the base of the plant.

Prune the flower stems to encourage rebloom. Why not trim nearly spent flowers early to enjoy them fresh...or dry them for long-lasting scented dried flower arrangements.

In early spring, trim any damaged portions as they begin to grow. Remove a few of the woodiest stems out at ground level every few years to rejuvenate your Sensation!
