Perovskia atriplicifolia
Common Name: Russian Sage Family: Lamiaceae (The Mint Family)

Perovskia atriplicifolia
Zoom In Photo:

Grey-white foliage and airy blue-lavender flowers. Does best with dry hot conditions, forming a lovely haze of colour at the middle to back of the border against which so many colours go well. The hotter the location, the happier the Perovskia. Selected by the Perennial Plant Association as Perennial Plant of the Year 1995. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
