Lavandula pinnata buchii
This lovely Lavender adds an elegant touch to any landscape. Its long spikes, topped with dark purple flowers sway in the wind, causing movement and attracting hummingbirds, bees and butterflies to your garden. The gray-green foliage is finely divided, creating an almost lacy appearance. It grows 2 feet tall and 4 feet wide.
Lavandula pinnata buchii fits into the category of Pterostachys Lavenders, which get their name from the “winged spikes” shape of the flowers that grow atop the long slender stems. This type of Lavender is also called “Jagged Lavender” or “Candelabra Lavender”, for the way the flower is divided into three parts, making them look like candelabras.
This is an excellent choice for drier areas of a landscape and blooms Spring through Fall. It is hardy to about 25°. It doesn’t have the strong sweet scent that most lavenders have, however its beauty is in the size, color and shape of the plant.
