Blue Jeans Baby Russian Sage

Bees and Butterflies Will Thank You
There's a lot of things going for Russian Sage the savvy gardener can benefit from. We like its sage-like, herbal perfume, but deer aren't big on the scent. It tends to ward them off from munching too closely. It also gives pollinators nourishment all the way into fall, when there's not a lot of other nectar-heavy plants in bloom. With most Russian Sage, stems can split and fall, making the whole display topple over, but this variety doesn't even have that problem! These shorter stems grow fast to fill in a border, and have no problem standing straight. Try it in cut and dried bouquets, too, the pretty blue blooms add a lot to the arrangement. PP29281
