The Most Compact Yet!

Its super tolerance of heat, humidity, and drought make it a favorite!
Cultivar name: 'WALPPB'

The most compact Russian Sage yet, Peek-a-Blue is ideal for those smaller spaces where you need long-lasting, easy-care color. This dwarf Perovskia occupies very little garden real estate, yet makes a big impression with silvery foliage and exquisite lavender-blue blooms.

Peek-a-Blue is just about 2 feet high and wide, with masses of soft lavender flowers that begin in midsummer and continue right into fall. The blooms arise above glinting silver-green foliage, dense and bushy, that adds interest to the plant from spring until frost. And even if severe winter weather makes this plant die back, it will re-emerge in spring, stronger than ever!Developed by our friends at Walters Gardens, Peek-a-Blue thrives in full sun and any well-drained soil, even poorly fertile or dry conditions. Pamper it the first season while it finds its feet, then let it go! You'll find it superbly tolerant of heat, humidity, drought, and cold. Butterflies and hummingbirds like it, too.

Combine this Russian Sage with all your flowering annuals, from Coneflower to Daylily. It makes a nice foreground planting to Roses, hiding their bare thorny "legs." You can never have too many sources of blue in the sunny garden. Add Peek-a-Blue to the display this season! Zones 4-9.
