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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Do these plants carry ticks like other sagebrush?

Asked by: Roonie
Sage should have a general tendency to repel ticks. However, if you have ticks in your area, they will seek out tall plants in order to drop onto passing animals. Having a barrier of mulch--particularly cedar mulch--between wilderness areas and your lawn and yard can discourage ticks from getting into your yard in the first place. Plants like lemongrass and sage are less likely to harbor ticks because they repel many insects.

Russian Sage & butterflies

Looking for a bloom all summer plant to attract butterflies & honeyb bees. Anybody know if this isa a candidate?
Asked by: Magic72
If you have a mature bush it will have flowers throughout the season. I also have lavender that I trim back in the offseason to bring back the blossoms, but I haven't even done that with sage.

1 gal. Russian Sage Plant is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Russian Sage What is shipped is small half dried out bare root branch sticks for $20.00

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOT A RUSSIAN SAGE This is NOT a Russian sage. It's a sage, but I'm not sure which one.
