Quick Overview:

‘CrazyBlue’ is a compact-mounded Russian sage cultivar that typically matures to only 14” tall on stiff, upright, silvery stems clad with aromatic (strong sage aroma) silvery gray-green leaves (to 3” long). Purple-violet to violet-blue flowers bloom in whorls from late spring to late summer.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Sharp soil drainage is especially important. Avoid wet, poorly drained soils. Plants have good drought tolerance. Best flowering occurs in full sun locations. Stems are more likely to flop if plants are grown in part shade. Cut back plants almost to the ground in late winter to early spring as soon as new growth appears.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
