Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Lacey Blue' is a densely branched, fragrant, gray-green plant with large purple-blue blooms. 'Lacey Blue' holds up well to wind and rain. Its showy blooms and silvery foliage make a great show midsummer into fall. Perovskia 'Lacey Blue' is stronger and shorter than ‘Little Spire’ and perfect for smaller landscapes.
Although Perovskia is NOT an American native, it is a deer resistant plant that will grow easily in most of the country and will attract pollinators.
Also referred to as Russian Sage, Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Lacey Blue' prefers full sun and average to dry, well-drained soil. It is drought tolerant and suitable for coastal planting. Allow the woody stems to remain over the winter and trim back in spring after new leaves start to appear.
