Perovskia atriplicifolia ‘Rocketman’

Russian Sage

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.406.110

Russian Sage is extremely valuable for its long season of bloom in the summer garden. Plants form a bushy upright clump of greyish leaves that are lacy and fragrant. Spikes of rich lavender-blue flowers appear from mid-summer to late fall. This selection is vase-shaped with an excellent upright habit. An extremely versatile garden plant, Russian Sage loves hot, sunny sites and will fit right into the perennial border, also good to use among shrubs, and even in containers or tubs. Attractive to butterflies. Prune back to no less than 6 inches in the spring, and never in the fall. Exceptionally drought tolerant. Selected as Perennial Plant of the Year in 1995. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
