Quick Overview:

‘Sage Advice’ Russian Sage is the darkest purple Russian Sage flower to date. A hardy, drought tolerant plant, Russian Sage will survive sub zero winters and dry, poor landscapes with ease. This tough perennial will give you long lasting blooms in mid summer and will last well into the fall. Xeriscape gardeners will appreciate its ability to thrive in dry conditions. Lavender blooms erupt from silvery gray foliage creating a fountain of color, and the foliage is fragrant when bruised, emitting a sagey scent.  Strongly upright branches do not flop.

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.
