You would be wise to choose this Perovskia because it's the darkest purple shade to date. Rich lavender-purple flowers are produced on strong, upright plants filled with oval-shaped, notched leaves. This is early to bloom just like its counterpart 'Denim 'n Lace', starting around late July in Michigan. Compared to 'Denim 'n Lace', this is a slightly taller variety with darker purple calyxes and broader leaves, compared to the dissected leaves of the former.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Perovskia atriplicifolia ''Sage Advice''

A perfect perennial for hot, dry climates and also exceptionally cold hardy. Perovskia can be used in a wide variety of environments with little attention through the season - a reason they have long been a staple of landscapers. Expect these plants to be a little later to emerge in spring, but also to offer color well into fall.
