Description

Here's the Russian sage so many of us have waited for. Short enough that it won't overpower your garden with stems strong enough to withstand strong winds and heavy rain, Perovskia 'Denim 'n Lace' is an outstanding groundcover with a variety of uses.Perovskia 'Denim 'n Lace' doesn't require any expert gardening skills. In fact, a common joke among gardeners is that the more you neglect Russian sage, the better it grows. And that might not be far from the truth.

The airy, purple-blue blooms, held close together and pointed straight up, create a wispy, billowy, very full appearance. These blooms remain all season, keeping Perovskia 'Denim 'n Lace' colorful for months.

Stable in a variety of climates, Perovskia 'Denim 'n Lace' needs full sun to maintain its upright appearance. Don't worry about maintenance—it scarcely needs any. Pamper it the first season and be sure to cut the foliage down to just a few inches from the ground in early spring, before new growth begins. Other than that, Perovskia 'Denim 'n Lace' is quite self-sufficient, standing up to heat, drought, salt spray, and even poor soil. Because of the scented foliage, deer an other nibblers tend to leave it alone, but hummingbirds adore it, and will visit frequently.

Despite its vigorous growth, 'Denim 'n Lace' stays under 3 feet high and just a bit wider. The combination of blue-purple flowers with silver-green foliage makes the transition to colder weather beautifully. Enjoy this long-lived, beautiful multi-season perennial.
