1 Gal. Russian Sage Plant

$19.99 /each

Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Attractive, semi-woody perennial with elongated, grey-green leaves, which strongly resembles lavender and can be used as a replacement in areas too cold to grow lavender reliably. Tiny, purple-blue, tubular flowers are arranged in whorls along long, 3- 4 ft. tall stems in late summer. Technically, the plant is not a sage; the name most likely comes from the characteristic sage fragrance given off when the leaves are crushed. Has been in cultivation since mid-1800. Plant in moist, well drained soil in full sun; has a tendency to flop in anything less than full sun. Drought tolerant. Cut plants almost to ground in early spring before new growth begins. Versatile plant with a variety of uses: in the middle or back of the perennial border, in the cottage garden, as a foundation plant, and in many other situations. Pairs nicely with ornamental grass, white or yellow flowered perennial, rudbeckia, and coreopsis. Also, used to separate strong color patterns, or as a divider hedge.

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. Perovskia atriplicifolia (Russian Sage) is not sagebrush but rather a member of the mint family. It is a semi woody landscape perennial that has aromatic green leaves and showy fragrant lavender blue flowers in summer. The plant has no serious disease or pest issues.

Answer: 
Hello, Paul. The Russian Sage flowers best in full sun. Besides reduced blooming, the plant has a tendency to flop over in shaded conditions.

Answer: 
Hello, thank you for your question. Russian Sage is normally tolerant of drier, chalky soils that have high pH levels. Because is it considered salt tolerant, usually drought tolerant once established, and also grows well in gravelly soils, it should be a good choice for your particular site.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't order plants on-line I would recommend this product however I would go to the store to pick up - I ordered mine on-line and I am very disappointed how they arrived - I still planted them and I'm hoping for the best. The plant itself is beautiful July 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Such a Disappointment Plants came nicely packed, but leaves were already yellow and plant was brittle. Trying to bring them back to live, but VERY disappointed that I wasted money on this. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russian Sage Came super fast, boxes were loaded with packing peanuts around the plants. Roots were still wet from last watering even in high summer temperatures. Plants were healthy and have planted well. Loaded with flowers and look like they will survive. Came in pots not bare rooted. A bit different from the other Russian sage plants I have. I will buy live plants from again! September 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Russian Sage So far so good. These 3 plants were carefully shipped bare-root.We received and planted them in soil in 3 pots. They appear to now be thriving and there is some new green growth on all 3 plants. September 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Russian Sage I have bought a Russian Sage from Home Depot, I live in the Southern Calif. Desert instructions on plant state " low water " bit your page here states "Medium water " which is it ?? I'm getting yellow leaves, it's in full sun. This plant was bought in a " Smart Plant " pot drought tolerant. July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful plant I have the red sage plant, it is truly a beautiful plant. I love the movement it has when breeze is blowing. Bees & butterflies love it. After plant started to spread, I transplanted it and now have it in several places in garden. It does well in full and partial sun in our hot Florida summer. Has survived several years of winter also. July 12, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NOT A RUSSIAN SAGE This is NOT a Russian sage. It's a sage, but I'm not sure which one. November 30, 2013
