Gardeners unable to use Russian Sage due to its commanding presence may rejoice at the unusually dwarf habit of one of the greatest garden plants. Peek-a-Blue reaches just over 2' tall, its lavender-blue spires crowning well-mannered mounds of silvery green foliage. An excellent specimen for a sunny border. 'WALPPB' PPAF

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery.

I ordered six of these last fall and followed planting and care directions to a tee, only 1 actually survived and "sprouted" but never grew more than a foot and not an ounce of purple present. Too much $$ wasted for me :(.

I'm looking forward to the light blue of the Russian sage against my Julia coneflowers. Got the idea from your catalog and wanted it for my garden. So far the Russian sage plants are healthy and leafing out well. A little slow this year due to cooler than normal temps. But I think that once the heat sets in they'll take off like mad.

Plant Perovskia in full sun and well-drained soil. Drought tolerant.
Leave the silvery stems standing over winter; prune back to just 8–12″ in early spring. In cold-winter climates, plants may be killed back to the ground but will resprout.
