Lavender blue spires are held on purple calyxes and contrast beautifully against the silvery blue aromatic leaves. Thrives in the heat of summer, and can tolerate drought once well established. Deer and rabbits are not fans of this plant.
56 A shorter, manageable Russian Sage that is still vigorous in the landscape and production. Lavender blue flowers held in smoky purple calyxes bloom for a long period starting in midsummer, with the color from the calyxes extending appeal into fall.
This cultivar of Russian Sage is distinguished by its narrower, more upright vase-shaped habit and relatively short stature. Aromatic, grey-green foliage on silvery stems is topped with lavender blue flowers for many months. Little fertilization required.
Bloom Time: Late Summer
