Product Description
Attracts butterflies to the garden for months! This low-maintenance perennial has a long summertime bloom period—and the refreshing blue flowers beckon butterflies. Growing 3-4 ft. tall, Russian Sage has finely dissected, gray-green leaves that provide a pretty backdrop for the flower panicles. When crushed, the leaves are very aromatic. Named the 1995 Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year, this drought-tolerant perennial looks good when grown in groups or as a specimen plant in the garden. Deer tend to avoid. Grows best in full sun. Zones 4-9.
