More About Russian Sage...

Russian sage is a deciduous semi-woody subshrub with upright, grayish white stems and attractive lobed, silvery gray leaves. The stems and leaves give off a pungent odor when crushed or bruised. In late summer and fall Russian sage produces 12 in spires of small, tubular lavender flowers. Flowering persists for two or three months. Russian sage grows in a clump about 3 to 5 feet tall with a spread of two or three feet.
