Perovskia Rocketman, Russian Sage

Its fantastic ornamental silvery foliage provides a stunning backdrop for other plants. Hoards of lavender blue flowers bloom midsummer into fall. This variety has stronger stems and more upright habit than others. A long bloomer, you can expect colorful flowers from July through Oct. Unbeatable for mass display, as a specimen and for cutting. Easy to grow in full sun. Drought tolerant.
