P9. Perovskia atriplicifolia ‘Denim ‘n Lace’

P9. Perovskia atriplicifolia ‘Denim ‘n Lace’

Lacy, bright blue flowers with amethyst outer petals give great color from midsummer through mid-fall.  The sturdy silvery-grey foliage is covered with large, fluffy, lavender-blue flowers.   This newer cultivar of Russian Sage has a more upright habit and doesn’t flop like other varieties. 

‘Denim ‘n Lace’ is drought tolerant and thrives on neglect and poor to average soil.  Plant it in full sun.  This is a shorter, stronger, variety that is superior to former “floppy” varieties.   The leaves are aromatic. The airy cottage feel of Russian Sage contrasts well with pink roses, lemon yellow lantana, marigolds, silvery lamb’s ear or Artemesia.  Suitable for the middle to back of the border.

28-32”H, 34-38”W, full sun.  Attracts hummingbirds.  Deer resistant.
