'Little Spire' was selected for its relatively short, upright habit which prevents the leaning that is typical of the species. Small, narrow, gray-green leaves compliment the lavender-blue flowers. This cultivar has a wonderfully long blooming period beginning in late summer and continuing well into the fall.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

The ideal plant for hot, dry climates! Russian Sage is classified as a sun shrub or woody perennial. It performs very well in full sun and any well-drained soil. Average to dry moisture levels are ideal, and few pests bother this plant. If pruning is necessary, do so in Spring when new growth appears. Prune back to just above the lowest bud.
