Perovskia atriolicifolia-Russian sage

Propagating Russian sage because it is more of a deciduous woody plant so it can be a long and slow process but a perennial as well and propagating by division is possible, better to attempt in the fall, so the alternative is to attempt cuttings of 3-4" long in late spring. It grows to a height of 3-5 feet on somewhat weak stems so it is best to plant it amongst studier taller perennials like Rubeckia to prevent ii from leaning and it stands out because its leaves are silvery-grey in contrast to the green of most perennials and blooms all summer which the honey bees enjoy with lavender-blue flowers which deer dislike. In tolerates full sun, alkaline, and dry but well draining soil and should be cut back in the spring.
