Fernleaf Lavender, Lavandula pinnata, is a highly ornamental and useful flowering plant. Its deeply cut, fern-like, silvery-green foliage and deep lilac-blue flowers are sure to please. Fernleaf Lavender is a tender perennial in zones 7-9 and an annual in colder regions. Fernleaf Lavender blooms from late spring through late summer and has scented foliage with fragrant flowers. This plant is heat tolerant, a delightful heavy bloomer, and virtually maintenance free. 

Fernleaf Lavender Plant Care  

Lavender naturally thrives in a dry arid climate, so be sure to monitor excessive moisture, which can ultimately lead to fungal or root rot issues. Fernleaf Lavender prefers a slightly alkaline soil pH of 6.7 to 7.3. Do not overwater and allow the soil to dry out in between waterings. You can clip faded blooms to extend blooming. 

Growing Fernleaf Lavender Plant 

Grow this lavender in moderately fertile, well-drained soil. It requires a full sun location, receiving at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. Fernleaf Lavender has a small shrub-like habit. Its mature height is 24-36 inches with a width of 24 inches, so space plants approximately 24 inches apart on center to allow for adequate airflow and growth. 

Fernleaf Lavender grows well in containers and fills up the space as an attractive fragrant filler. Due to its bushy nature and overall mature size, select a container at least 20 inches wide with plenty of drainage holes. Place the planter in a full-sun location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Monitor the moisture of the soil when planted in containers. An unglazed terra cotta pot is ideal as it wicks excessive moisture out efficiently to prevent Fernleaf Lavender from sitting in soggy soil.  

Watering Fernleaf Lavender Plant 

Water Fernleaf Lavender only when the top 2 inches of the soil are dry–it prefers soil on the drier side. Direct the water to the plant roots and soil, and avoid watering overhead. 

Feeding Fernleaf Lavender Plant 

Fertilizing Fernleaf Lavender is not necessary, especially if planted in well-draining soil rich in organic matter. If you want to encourage more blooms, you can use a water-soluble, bloom-boosting fertilizer at a weak strength once a month throughout the growing season.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
