Perovskia is a sub-shrub that grows annually from a woody base. The most commonly encountered form is Perovskia atriplicifolia 'Blue Spire' which each year puts out 3ft to 4ft tall erect silver stems clothed in ovate, deeply cut and lobed greyish leaves. At the end of the summer its stems terminate in long panicles of tiny, soft-violet tubular flowers. The effect is of a bluish haze hovering above the border, which is particularly effective among the longer shadows and in evening light. This half hardy perennial comes with an added bonus in that the leaves of perovskia are strongly aromatic when brushed or crushed and smell of both sage and lavender. The stems are deciduous and, with a little grooming and adjustment in late autumn, have a slender, upright, bleached presence in the garden that can last throughout winter. Height 2 ft.

    Germination; Sow indoors immediately. An early sowing should offer first year flowering. Surface sow onto moist, well-drained seed compost. Do not cover seeds but press gently into the soil. Ideal temp. 15-18°C. Germination is slow and erratic taking 3-12 weeks approx. If germination does not occur cold stratify. Place seeds in a polythene bag and move to 4°C for 2-4 weeks, then return to warmth for germination. Transplant seedlings to the garden when well grown.

    Growing; Prefers any ordinary/ poor soil which is well-drained in full sun. Plant tightly together. Requires little attention once established.

    Cultivation; Pruning Group 6. Cut back to near-ground level in mid-spring as this stimulates strong, new growth. Propagate by seed or softwood cuttings taken in spring. Can be deadheaded as this may result in a second flush of flowers. Seedheads left on the plant look attractive.
