Perovskia (Russian Sage) is perfect for that area needing a soft, airy effect. It is a woody-based perennial of the mint family which typically grows 2-4' tall and features finely dissected, aromatic, gray-green leaves on stiff, upright, square stems. Its whorls of tubular flowers have a long summer bloom period.

It performs well in any well-drained soil. Russian Sage prefers full sun and will grow in shady areas, but will not be as full and dense. In spring, cut back to 6 before the new growth begins. Periodic pruning will produce better growth and a stronger bloom. It has no serious insect or disease problems.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
