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

Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Silvery Blue'
Zoom In Photo:

Extra silvery foliage compared to other cultivars 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.
