Lavandula bipinnata.
The species name describes the character of leaves. The flower does have lavender smell too.


For Id fragrant herb CS07092012: Can you please Id the herb . Leaves looked like Artemisia. But the flowers seem not. Is it a member of Lamiaceae. This was collected from Vikarabad near hyderabad

Photograps looks like Lavendula species need to be checked

Thank you for the possible ID. When I check out with flowersof india site the feather leaved lavender matches with leaf structure, but flower colour looks different. Anybody can please confirm the ID

Yes indeed this is Lavandula bipinnata.
The plant has a lavender odour.
Some characters to observe:
Stem quadrangular.
Leaves opposite sessile.3-10cm, deeply pinnatisect into linear lobes,pubescent beneath. Flowers bluish white.Corolla 1cm, 2 lipped,Upper lip with two short rounded lobes. Lower lip 5 lobed Midlobe oblong rounded longer.(Only feature not observed here; the middle lobe is bifid here)

Thank you … I noticed the bifid lobe too. It has a mild and pleasant fragrance. Is this plant rare or common coz I have not come across thios plant in agricultural fields . THis was collected from a forest area. Any pointers to ethnobotany. I came across a reference that it is commonly used in the tribal medicines.

It is very common in Pune. Maharashtra, in open areas esp. hills surrounding the city.
