A Workhorse in the Garden!

This is one of my favorite perennials in the garden. Thought to be an herb because of its name, Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) is a wonderful perennial. Has a wonderful sagey smell and lovely lavender flowers that the pollinators love. This one is a cultivar called 'Little Spires'. I got this one because it doesn't taller than four feet. Having written that sentence, I break the four foot rule every day! It is a wonderful addition to any garden as long as your chives don't bury it! Hopefully, now that the garden has been dechived, it will flourish! Talk to you later!
