Product Description

Perovskia Atrip Blue Spire (commonly known as Russian Sage) is a plant which gives both impressive flowers and foliage. From summer to autumn, highly scented silver leaves are topped with spikes of gorgeous, tiny, violet purple bell-shaped flowers which will attract butterflies and bees into the garden. Native to central Asia, Russian Sage's natural habitat is on dry plains which makes it hassle free and drought tolerant. A holder of the RHS Award of Merit, they are perfect for growing in beds or the border and look especially striking planted next to ornamental grasses. Height 1m. 8cm pot plants supplied.
