Blue Steel Perovskia

Tough, easy-care perennial

  • Lavender-blueflower spikes
  • Aromatic foliage
  • Heat and drought tolerant
  • Attracts bees and hummingbirds
  • Deer tend to avoid
This tough Russian sage stands up to the elements—and looks good doing it. Growing 28-34 in. tall, Blue Steel Perovskia is a densely branched, compact perennial with upraised stems. The lavender-blue flower spikes attract hummingbirds and pollinators—and both the flowers and silvery green foliage add fragrance to the garden. This sun-loving perennial is cold hardy and heat tolerant. Once established, it's drought tolerant too. Whether grown in a container, as an accent plant or massed in the landscape, this easy-care perennial is impressive. Grows best in full sun. Deer tend to avoid.
