Distinguished for its large lavender-blue flowers and compact bushy habit. A long-bloomer, this cutie is small enough to nestle into almost any sunny garden. Spicy-scented silver foliage and blossoms thrive in dry, tough conditions.

Perovskia Lacey Blue was bred by Peter Catt of Liss forest Nursery in the UK from a self-pollinated P. Blue Spire.

Perovskia General Information

Perovskia are graceful aromatic shrubs with an open habit. Long spikes of silvery-blue flowers accent its complementary silver-gray foliage. Flowers almost two months from the summer into the fall. Shrub-size, semi-woody plants for full sun. Drought tolerant. Avoid too moist (wet feet).

Perovskia Plant Care

Prefers somewhat dry soil with good drainage. Can be divided every 4-6 years in spring or fall. Offsets from side of clump can be dug and transplanted. Should not be cut back hard in the fall, leaving some stem buds for next year's growth. Clean up old foliage and stems in spring.
