Full Product Details

Product Information

Feel a crash of fresh scent with the remarkable perfume, colour, and foliage of 'Blue Spire'. This upright deciduous shrub boasts deeply cut grey-green foliage that is aromatic in its own right, as well as striking flower spikes that mark the tail end of summer.

The sage-like aroma that fills the air inspires the common name of 'Russian Sage', as a fresh fragrance is released when the foliage is brushed past or crushed - a true marvel on summertime strolls.

Tall silver spires coated in masses of tiny violet-blue tubular flowers emerge from July through to early autumn.

Perovskia love to grow in full sun and prefer quite poor, well-drained soil that is moderately fertile, so is well suited to dry gravel gardens and coastal locations, where they cope well with the salty air and dry breezes.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant. Reaching a height of 1.2m and spread of 1m.

Top Tips

Perovskias prefer to grow in full sun in well drained, poor soil that’s only moderately fertile.

Care Information

  • To plant, firstly water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and three times the width of the supplied nursery pot.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out some of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed.
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well before adding a mulch around the base of the plant.
  • Cut back to a woody framework 15cm tall in March, in preperation for the new season's growing efforts.
