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

Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Little Spire'
Zoom In Photo: Walters Gardens

Grey-white foliage and airy lavender flowers top off at just two feet tall, about half the height of the species. Does best with dry hot conditions, forming a lovely haze of colour at the front to middle of the border. The hotter the location, the happier the Perovskia.
