Perovskia Blue Jean Baby, Russian Sage

Perovskia Blue Jean Baby, Russian Sage

A vigorous, profuse blooming selection, Blue Jean Baby Russian Sage, Perovskia, brings brilliant blue flowers to the landscape. Lavender blue flowers held in smoky purple calyxes bloom for a long period starting in midsummer, with the color from the calyxes extending appeal into fall. This variety is one of the earliest Perovskia to bloom. Unbeatable for mass display, as a specimen and for cutting. One of the shortest Russian Sages available reaching only 34″ tall when in bloom.

Easy to grow in full sun, in average soil. Drought tolerant and deer resistant.
