Description

Russian Sage is a perennial with an exceptionally long season of interest. It forms a bushy upright clump of fragrant grey-green leaves, bearing copious spikes of lavender-blue flowers from mid-summer on. This is a compact selection, better suited to the smaller garden or for the front of the border than the taller forms. Excellent for hot, sunny sites, in the garden or in tubs. Prune back to no less than 6 inches in the spring, and never in the fall. Exceptionally drought tolerant.
