Why Plant Perovskia?

Perovskia (Russian Sage) is a superbly-adapted shrub, suited to harsh, erratic conditions where it’s at its best. Perovskia is one of the most common perennial plants featured in drought-resistant landscapes. Fertile soil and too much water make the Perovskia plants lanky and will dull the flower color.

"I feel very strongly that good garden design demands Russian Sage be planted with other rugged flowering shrubs and perennials to complement its smoky-blue flower spikes." — Horticulturalist David Salman
