This unusual Lavender species from the Canary Islands gets its name from its unique silvery gray leaves. They are shaped like the boney skeleton of a small fish and actually help in creating an attractive somewhat lacey effect for the plant. Also quite showy are the violet-blue flowers held on tall stems above the foliage. We absolutely love the way it looks planted alone in a container. Fishbone Lavender, like other Lavenders, grows best with good drainage and when allowed to stay a little on the dry side. Not often encountered in and around Oklahoma, this species is sometimes called Fernleaf Lavender or Jagged Lavender.
