Russian Sage plants are one of the most trouble-free semi-woody shrubs around - elevated with aromatic sage green foliage and airy fragrant lavender-blue spires of blooms! This herbaceous perennial plant provides a unique, pleasant aromatic odor when the leaves are crushed. Xeric, Firewise and easy to grow - we’re sure you’ll love Russian Sage!
Need more of a reason to adore these upright airy perennial plants? The blooms are a fan favorite of honeybees, bumblebees, butterflies and hummingbirds! Exactly the qualities you’d expect from these Salvia family members! These are fantastic perennials for areas that Lavender finds a bit too moist, or where you need something taller with more impact!
The delicate grayish foliage blends in well with just about any other perennial; combine this Sage with Ornamental Grasses and Succulents for a stunning and colorful contrast. This Sage blooms for a long period and maintains its striking silver-white stems for winter interest!
Russian Sage requires very little care if planted in a sunny, loose and very well-drained area, and is drought tolerant (Xeric) once established! Provide moderate moisture on a regular basis for new plants to get them established in their new home. These long-blooming, disease-free varieties have several distinctive features, perhaps their best feature is how pests and deer often pass them by, while the aromatic oils in the leaves keep away Mosquitoes!
Diligent deadheading will encourage a rebloom if the stems are pinched off after the first flowering episode fades away.
