Easy-Care Lavender Alternative for Any Landscape
This Perovskia variety is the hardier alternative to lavender. A long-blooming perennial, the Lacey Blue Russian Sage is not only tough and drought resistant but also an aromatic addition to any garden.
From the base of the plant, countless spikes of violet flowers emerge in spring to deliver a fragrant, long-lasting bloom. It has stronger stems that are less prone to flopping than other varieties. Its purple blossoms—and their delightful aroma—make the Lacey Blue irresistible to pollinators.
Beyond its blooms, the Lacey Blue variety also features stunning silver-gray foliage that forms its signature mound shape (and is also resistant to deer!). Versatile and unique, the Lacey Blue Russian Sage fits in with any landscape style.
Whether you plant them in containers, along paths, or en masse at the center of your garden, these bloomers are sure to please. And because of their extreme drought tolerance, they can thrive even in desert-like conditions. Improved to be stronger and easier maintenance, the Lacey Blue Russian Sage only requires a single prune at the end of the season.
Ready to plant something unique and unexpected? Grab this hardy lavender alternative before it sells out!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Lacey Blue Russian Sage in a location with full sun and well-draining soil. If planting in a container, combine soil with sand to ensure the soil will drain easily.
If planting in a garden bed, dig a hole that is the same depth of the roots and two times as wide. After loosening the roots with your fingers, place the plant in the hole and backfill the dirt.
2. Watering: Water immediately after planting and continue to water regularly until the plant is well established. Then, you can water as needed.
3. Pruning: Prune your Lacey Blue Russian Sage no further than 6 inches from the ground in the fall to prepare for new growth.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
