Attractive, semi-woody perennial with elongated, gray-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's. 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.
