Perovskia Blue Spire, commonly called Russian sage, this aromatic shrub resembles lavender with its upright soft blue flower spikes and silvery foliage. Russian sage is an excellent shrub for a dry sunny spot or to line a path. This Perovskia has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit as an excellent garden plant. Grow Perovskia Blue Spirein a moderately fertile, free draining soil in full sun. Perovskia are drought tolerant plants that will also cope with poor soil.



Dig a hole large and deep enough to take the plant’s root ball.

Gently tap the plant out of its pot without disturbing the soil around the roots.

Position the plant in the hole so the plant’s crown is level with the surface and sits at the same depth as it was in the pot; make sure the roots are in direct contact with the soil.

Backfill with the excavated soil and firm in gently.

Water to settle the soil around the roots.



Watering: Water regularly in the first few weeks after planting but don’t overwater. The plants will send their roots down in search of moisture as they grow.

Feeding:  Give plants a boost if necessary with a handful of granular feed hoed into the soil in spring.

Pruning:  Mahonia x media Charity needs no regular pruning.

On established plants cut back if necessary to rejuvenate leggy mahonias. The cut stems are bright yellow, which can sometimes come as a shock when you first cut into them!
