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 on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Lavandula pinnata var. buchii (Tenerife).
