Russian sage, Perovskia atriplicifolia, is an attractive plant with elongate, gray-green leaves and square, silvery-gray stems that produces an airy cloud of color late in the summer. The tiny, purple-blue, tubular flowers are arranged in whorls along long stems. This semi-woody plant was named Perennial Plant of the Year in 1995 by the Perennial Plant Association. It superficially resembles lavender, and can be used in areas too cold to grow lavender reliably. This member of the mint family (Labiateae) is hardy in zones 4-9.
