DescriptionWith its aromatic leaves and upright spikes of violet-blue flowers, Russian sage makes a wonderful companion to all kinds of late-summer ornamental grasses and perennials. Known to be  'Perfect for Pollinators', Russian sage will help attract and support bees and other pollinating and beneficial insects.

Care: As this shrub has a tendency to flop a little, in march cut back to the permanent framework of the shrub to promote bushier growth. after pruning apply a generous 5-7 cm mulch of well rotten garden compost or manure around the base of the plant .
