Lavandula pinnata var. buchii (Tenerife) (Lavender) - This unusual lavender has loose upright growth with gray feathery leaves that are twice dissected (bipinnate). It grows to about 2 feet tall and spreads to about 4 feet wide. The tall branching spikes of pale violet flowers appear from spring to fall. It takes full sun, has low water needs, and is hardy to about 25 degrees F. Our seed was obtained from the Tenerife Botanic Garden in the Canary Islands. The flowers of this lavender are not recommended for human consumption.  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Lavandula pinnata var. buchii (Tenerife).
