Quick Overview:

A shorter, upright selection that does not flop over in the landscape as is common with Russian Sage. Features spikes of lavender blue flowers and adds a sense of lightness to the garden. Use in a mass planting, border or as an accent.

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.
