Perovskia

Perovskia atriplicifolia ‘Lacey Blue’ full sun

Plucked from a tray of ‘Blue Spire’ seedlings by British plant breeder, Peter Catt, ‘Lacey Blue’ is a superb long-lived selection that’s big on flowers and small in stature. Cherished by hummingbirds and fantastic in a vase, long blooming masses of uniquely large blue-purple flowers populate stiff upright spikes. Thickset frosted stems and finely dissected, gray-green leaves, emitting a spicy scent and sporting soft hairs with a subtle silvery sheen, define the compact short bushy mound.

This rugged undemanding perennial appreciates a spring pruning and makes an exemplary candidate for hot dry, sharp draining spots, especially where space is scarce. (pp#20,845)

Blooms July–mid-October.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 2' 0"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers....

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
