Russian Sage – Perovskia Atriplicifolia.
Bloom Time: Mid-summer to fall
Growing Conditions: Russian Sage prefers well drained soil and full sun.
Care: These blue flowers continue to get brighter as their blossoms open throughout the season. They get woody stems, which may die back to the ground if planted in a colder climate. In early spring, they should be pruned down to eight to ten inches in order to encourage profuse blooms and new growth. Very few pests are attracted to the plant, not even deer. It does not need to be divided.
