Favorite or New Plant

Russian Sage
Looking for one of the most adaptable perennials for the landscape? It's Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia), a tall perennial that can accent the garden. It is a striking plant to add to flower beds, in island gardens, among shrub borders, and combined with ornamental grasses. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Water sparingly to keep the plant from becoming floppy.
