Perovskia atriplicifolia ‘Little Spire’ Dwarf Russian Sage
‘Little Spire’ Dwarf Russian Sage forms a bushy upright clump of fragrant grey-green leaves, bearing tonnes of spikes of lavender-blue flowers from mid-summer on. This is a compact selection, that doesn't flop over and is better suited to the smaller garden or for the front of the border than the taller forms. Excellent for hot, sunny sites, in the garden or in tubs. Prune plants back no harder than 4 to 6 inches, in early spring. Drought tolerant, once established.
