More Information

Description Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) always looks fresh, thanks to icy purple and blue tones, even in the heat and humidity of summer. Panicles of lavender-blue florets bloom for weeks above soft, silvery-green foliage. Stop and smell the sage! The small leaves release a delightful, herbal scent when crushed, but don't confuse it with edible sage. Russian sage is the perfect answer for those hot, dry sites that are hard to fill. Once established, Russian sage truly loves dry and well-draining conditions. It's low maintenance, easy to care for, and deer resistant. This plant looks great anywhere, but we especially love how it looks in cottage gardens! Details Botanical name: Perovskia atriplicifolia, Salvia yangii
Common name: Russian sage
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Height x width: 3-5' X 2-4'
Flower color: Lavender blue
Foliage color: Silver-green or blue-green
Season of interest: Midsummer to fall
Uses: Background, Border, Cottage gardening, Foundation planting, Massing, Naturalizing, Specimen
How To Grow Soil: Average, dry to medium, well-draining soils. Avoid wet, poorly drained soils.
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun). Best flowering occurs in full sun locations. Stems are more likely to flop if plants are grown in part shade.
Water: Dry to medium. Water regularly until established.
Spacing: 2 - 4 ft.
Fertilizing: Generally unnecessary but can be applied in spring if needed.
Winterizing: No special care is needed. Foliage can remain standing in the winter.
Maintenance & pruning: Cut back plants almost to the ground in late winter to early spring as soon as new growth appears. Plants have deep taproots and don't like to move once established.

Mail order gamble.

Some plants did ok. And others just flay out died. Probably will stick to buying in person.

Very Tough!!!

These are very tough plants! I placed my original order for 12 Russian Sage plants on 05/07 and received them 05/16. They came well packaged however, I did not like the staples in the plastic, I had to open each one with scissors and it was quite time consuming. The plants looked a little beat up from travel, but I was eager to get them in the ground and planted them right away and watered thoroughly. By 05/21 they were all completely brown and looked dead. I sent GGP photos of the plants and they honored their claim process and sent me 12 more plants that I received on 05/24, very fast shipping the second time around! The 12 new Russian Sage plants looked about the same as the last batch, slightly beat up during their travel. I actually left all of the "dead" plants in the ground and just planted the new plants right next to them. I live in the high desert and over the past 6 weeks have received freezing nights, windstorms and 100 degree heat waves. It is now July 1st and all but two of the 24 plants have survived! The little brown sticks that I believed to be dead have bright green new growth! I couldn't believe it! I live in Central Oregon, our zip code always says we are in hardiness zone of 6b, that is not accurate in my opinion and would say we are like a zone 5a with inter-mountain west tough terrain. Our days and nights can fluctuate more than 50 degrees. I am VERY IMPRESSED with GGP and these Russian Sage plants and highly recommend! The plants are small now but I am hoping they follow the old garden adage "First year sleep, second year creep, third year leap".
