Perovskia 'Russian Sage' Plants

Perovskia atriplicifolia

These perennial flowers have light-colored, lacy foliage and violet flowers that accent the pinks, purples, pale yellows, whites, and greens to their best advantage. Russian Sage are spectacular perennials for sun when used among lower mounded perennials, such as asters.

Russian Sage is extremely valuable for its long season of bloom in the summer garden. This lovely ornamental forms a bushy upright clump of lacy grayish leaves that are very fragrant. Spikes of rich violet-blue flowers appear in high summer, continuing into late fall. 'Russian Sage' is an extremely versatile garden plant and loves hot, sunny sites. Perovskia is at home among shrubs, as a perennial border, and even in containers or tubs. Attractive to bees and butterflies. Prune in spring to no lower than 6 inches. We also have a variety of aromatic sage plants that are great for cooking.

Uses: A beautiful bloomer, Perovskia's flowers last a long time! Much loved by butterflies and other natural pollinators, you'll have a hive of activity around these aromatic perennials.

Tips: Don't cut this perennial back further than 12" after frost in the fall, and leave some stem buds for next year's growth. A great plant that is both drought tolerant and deer resistant, a great choice for hot, dry spots. This perennial for sun does not like 'wet feet'! In order to get a full, bushy plant start pinching back about 1/2" when the plants reach a foot tall.

5 of 5 Russian Sage July 8, 2019
Reviewer: Pat Whitehead from Jacksonville, FL United States  
I bought this plant in the beginning of the season and it is growing nicely.  I am starting to get blooms this week and am noticing that pollinators are being attracted to the plant.  I personally like the foliage on the plant.  I will be transferring this plant to my in-ground garden in the spring.  Money well spent.  I will be visiting the "growers exchange" in the future.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from WARWICK, NY United States  
I bought 18 of these babies to create my border and they are thriving, even through the tumultuous late spring frost..  I cannot wait to see them in full bloom!

5 of 5 A great care-free plant May 31, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Wilmington, NC United States  
Perovskia sage is a plant that keeps giving year after year with little care. Bugs don't bother it, it loves heat and sun, and bees love it. Even after an unusually cold winter for our climate my Perovskias came back just fine. I highly recommend it.
