About Russian Sage in My Home Garden

I first fell in love with this plant years ago when I brought a plant home not knowing what it was.  I liked the scent when you rubbed the leaves and had no idea it would bloom.  The plant kind of reminds of the herb lavender. 


Personally, I love the Russian Sage Perennial in a grouping or mass planting. The downside is you have to wait until late June to Mid-July for any color on this plant.  Once it starts to bloom it really lights up the garden and landscape space.

Sage Mass Planting in My Garden

There are seven species of Perovskia, but P. atriplicifolia is the only one commonly available.

Salvia yangii, Perovskia atriplicifolia and commonly known as Russian sage, is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant. There are seven species of Perovskia, but P. atriplicifolia is the only one commonly available. In the first year, you will have to water well until it is established. It does best if you mulch the space where the perennial is planted.  The plant does best in full sun and very dry landscape.  This is a spectacular plant to grow in a mass planting.

Please note there are a few different types of Russian Sage.  One of my favorites besides the Perovskia featured on this page is the Denim N’ Lace.

  1. I put out 2 Russian sage plants this spring. They are smal and blooming, but the blooms are very pale. They get part sun.
