Culture et histoire du lavandin Niko

La pépinière cultive cette nouveauté horticole qui fut un véritable phénomène lors de sa première présentation au public en 2015.
Produite en jeune plant dans des godets de culture prêt à planter, la variété de Lavandula intermedia 'Phenomenal' est un véritable best-seller végétal.

C'est une plante hybride stupéfiante issue d'un croisement obtenu entre une L. 'Pure platinium' aux feuilles d'argent et le Lavandin, plant officinal très florifère.
Le résultat va au delà des espérances de son créateur, NikoChristou, photographe et passionné des Lavandes.

En effet, le superbe Lavandin Niko mérite bien son nom variétal de 'Phenomenal' car ses performances végétales sont véritablement phénoménales.
Au début des années 2013, avant sa mise en vente sur le marché, nombreux sont les pépiniéristes vantant ses qualités rustiques :

  • Un plant exceptionnel pour sa résistance au froid et aux gelées hivernales.
  • Une plante tolérante à la sécheresse qui s'adapte à la chaleur estivale.
  • Une variété qui s'accommode de l'humidité et qui n'est pas impacté par la pourriture grise.
  • Un arbrisseau robuste dont la végétation reste dense et touffue au fil des ans.

À ces extraordinaires avantages, viennent s'ajouter d'autres formidables atouts ornementaux :

  • Ce petit arbuste d'ornement forme un beau coussin arrondi au port compact de 70 cm en tout sens.
  • Ses feuilles semi-persistantes aromatiques ont une teinte argentée saisissante qui met en valeur sa floraison prolifique violacée.
    Plus la terre est sèche et plus les nuances claires seront importantes.
  • Ses tiges florales robustes forment une touffe serrée, dense à l'allure régulière et élégante et à la silhouette compacte.
  • Ses fleurs abondantes, plus grandes que la moyenne, sont d'un beau ton bleu violet.
    Elles s'épanouissent longuement de juin à octobre et attirent les abeilles et les papillons.
    Leur parfum d'été est un régal olfactif pendant toute la saison estivale.
    Plus il fait chaud et plus les inflorescences exhaleront les huiles essentielles responsable de leur sublime odeur lavandée.

Les plants sont à planter en pot, en bordure ou en massif, là ou vous pourrez profiter pleinement de leurs merveilleux arômes.
Une plante idéale dans les régions du Nord de la Loire à utiliser comme fleurs coupées, fraîches ou séchées dans la maison ou en aromathérapie.

Les plants de Lavandula intermedia 'Phenomenal' nécessitent peu d'entretien après la transplantation, un autre intérêt non négligeable dans un jardin

  • Cultivez les plants dans un sol graveleux, sans argile, peu fertile mais très bien drainé.
  • Arrosez dès la plantation puis oubliez-les.
  • Réduisez-les de 1/2 à 2/3 immédiatement après la floraison pour les empêcher que les pétales de fleurs viennent souiller la touffe vivace.
  • Aucun traitement contre les maladies est nécessaire.

Pour les producteurs à la recherche d'une époque de floraison spécifique, la L. x 'Phenomenal' peut être vernalisée et programmée pour fleurir à date convenue.
Essayer vous-aussi avec un plant en potée fleurie. La vernalisation consiste à faire subir aux plants une période de froid pour amorcer une floraison plus précoce.
