Plant Russian Sage for a Boost of Fall Color 

Russian sage flowers from summertime to October, offering color after other perennials have ended. Long, airy spikes hold lavender-blue flowers that sway in the wind.  

Late Blooming 

Even when not in flower, Russian sage's scented silvery-gray leaves adds appeal to the garden. Silver foliage contrasts nicely with lavender-blue flowers, giving a magnificent spectacle.  

Silver Foliage 

Established Russian sage is drought-tolerant, making it ideal for late summer and early fall heat and dryness. Gardeners find it low-maintenance since it thrives in dry soil.  

Drought Tolerance 

Russian sage blossoms attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, supplying nectar late in the season.  

Attracts Pollinators 

Russian sage grows 3–5 feet tall and erect. Its vertical structure gives the garden architectural flair and can frame other plants.  

Vertical Interest 

Russian sage doesn't get eaten by deer, so it's a good choice for areas where deer might be a problem.
