Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Filigran' (Russian sage)

Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Filigran'

Russian sage

With finely cut silvery foliage, Filigran has received high praise for its upright habit and long flowering period. Airy spikes of fuzzy blue flowers cover the plant in late summer. Easy to grow and very tolerant of drought, heat and humidity, but not of wet soil. Butterflies and bees love it!

Russian sage Interesting Notes

You are sure to love this deer-resistant introduction from Germany's Ernst Pagels. The foliage on the heat- and drought-tolerant Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Filigran' is extremely dissected compared to the other perovskias, giving a lacier textural appearance in the garden. The growth is also much more upright, combined with a longer flowering time but it's topped with the same dazzling, fuzzy, purple flowers throughout the summer...WOW! - Plant Delights Nursery

Genus name honours V. A. Perovski (1794 - c.1857) a Russian general. Specific epithet means with leaves resembling salt-bush. - Missouri Botanical Garden
