Default Phenomenal Lavender?

I've been reading about this new hardier variety of lavender, "Phenomenal" - that has high disease, cold, and heat-humidity tolerance. Attractive to me as it can apparently grow in Central Florida. Then I started looking on various web sites, and some recommend it for Zones 5-10 while others say 5-8. I'm in 9B.

I'd love to try some, even if it means keeping it in a large tall pot with extra attention to drainage and perhaps moving it to an area where in the heat of the summer it only gets morning sun and partial coverage from our afternoon tropical rains.

Has anyone here had luck with it? I love the idea of having some by the south facing front door where the scent will greet us and guests. Even if I have to rotate it out.
