Russian Sage was voted Perennial Plant of the Year in 1995 by the Perennial Plant Association, and it's still a garden favorite. Fragrant leaves, lovely dissected blue-green foliage and violet-blue flower spikes from summer into the fall make this a delightful addition to sunny summer gardens. 'Lacey Blue' Russian Sage tends to be a smaller variety, typically growing 18 to 24 inches in height and width, though it can grow bigger if it likes the environment. This tough perennial prefers to keep its feet on the drier side, making it a valuable option for xeriscaping and those parts of the garden that aren't watered often. Its salt tolerance makes it a great choice for coastal gardens, and its fragrant leaves tend to deter deer and rabbits, while bees and hummingbirds love the flower spikes.
