Superb drought tolerance!

A compact Perovskia, it won't flop in the summer heat!
Plant Patent #11,643. Tall, airy bloomspikes and richly aromatic gray foliage combine to make 'Little Spire' one of the most appealing perennials for the patio, perennial border, or accent planting! Very drought-tolerant and refusing to flop in the summer heat (as taller varieties sometimes do), this is a well-mannered little plant that adds valuable soft color to any display!

The long, slender stems filled with lavender flowers arise over many weeks (3 to 4 months isn't unheard of!), creating a vertical swathe of color that combines well with the reds, oranges, and yellows of summer perennials. Be sure to plant 'Little Spire' where you will brush past it while going through the garden -- the scent of the leaves is released by touch!

Just 24 inches tall and 20 to 24 inches wide, 'Little Spire's unusual foliage color and cool lavender-blue blooms add a soothing note to the sunny midsummer garden. It is superb in hot, humid areas if given good drainage around the crown, and quite drought-tolerant once established in the garden. Zones 4-9.
