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.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit.
