Perfect Purple Spikes on a Compact Plant

This award-winning little plant will make a huge splash in your landscape. The Perovskia ‘Little Spire’ (Perovskia atriplicifolia) is an exciting newer variety to the time-tested sage family.

It doesn’t get very big, growing only 2’ to 3’ high – the perfect size to fill in spots in your sunny border or foundation planting. It looks great next to a wall or fence combined with pink or yellow flowers. Try Pink Double Delight coneflowers or yellow Herbstonne Black-Eyed Susans for an instant eye-catching combo of color and texture.

This plant thrives in the heat. Too much water or not enough drainage will cause it to lazily flop before the season is done. With good drainage, though, this water-wise plant is a flower machine from late spring to the first frost.

The lavender purple spikes are butterfly magnets, but the deer won’t touch it. Since it is a member of the sage family, the leaves are very aromatic when you brush against them, with a kitchen-spice scent. Try planting this along a pathway to really enjoy this aspect.

Little Spire looks great in pots as well, and makes a nice alternative if you have trouble growing lavender where you live.

This charming compact Russian Sage from Nature Hills, with its wonderful purple flowers, will be a big hit in your garden. Order some now!

Color and fragrance Review by Drew
I am so happy that I decided to order three of these for a grouping. They make a wonderful cluster of blue-purple in my sunny garden.
Stands well Review by Dancing duck
Little Spire Russian Sage stands up belter the regular Russian Sage. It does not flop around much and I like that.
late bloomer Review by nifty gardener
This is a late-summer bloomer. It actually likes dry, sandy soil and heat. Truly smells like sage when touched. Must be planted in full sun for the best bloom results, not part shade. Will grow fairly tall, up to 4-5 feet when well established. Light and airy blooms
