If you like lavender, then you’re going to love Russian Sage. This ornamental perennial is often mistaken for lavender, and while closely related, is a different type of plant altogether. Plant this gorgeous specimen in a perennial bed, let it grace the border of a garden walkway, or put it to use around a patio to give your outdoor entertaining space a bold burst of beautiful lavender color.
Growers of Russian Sage know that the beauty to behold is not the whole story with this perennial. It’s also a treat for the senses with its aromatic fragrance derived from its membership in the mint family. Those who grow Russian Sage also remark on its hardy nature and ease of maintenance.
The strong, upright stems of Russian sage are dotted with silver grey leaves and tiny clusters of lavender blossoms. From a distance, the view of the Russian Sage takes on the appearance of a hazy bluish fog that shifts with every movement of the breeze each summer and creates this same striking visual well into the fall.
Russian Sage is a perennial you can plant and forget, counting on its outstanding performance year-after-year, no matter the challenges or conditions. A simple pruning after the emergence of new spring growth, cutting back the old stems to reveal the lower set of leaves helps it maintain its vitality and beauty. A durable, vigorous grower, Russian Sage plants scoff at heat, drought, and pests while still maintaining a fresh appearance.
Russian Sage is an exceptional perennial that’s a must-have for every landscape. A hardy, carefree plant for your yard, Russian Sage will provide years of long-blooming color and aromatic beauty. Order yours today!
