|Description||Tall, airy, spike-like clusters create a lavender-blue cloud of color above the finely textured, aromatic foliage. This vigorous, hardy, heat-loving and drought tolerant plant resists deer and pests. A superb companion for perennials, succulents and ornamental grasses. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Once established water during dry spells.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 3 to 4 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||Although it is from Russia, this lovely airy plant has the rangy character of Western sagebrush. Use it in dry landscapes with other desert plants or in gardens filled with natives. Very nice background in the cottage garden. A valuable plant for the Santa Fe style or even as a Mediterranean plant for that Tuscan garden of your dreams. Plant as singles, in clusters to intensify its presence, or in a linear mass for knot gardens or small divider hedges.|
|Companion Plants||Coneflower (Echinacea); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Milkweed (Asclepias); Bee Balm (Monarda); Aster (Aster)|
|Care||Easily grown in average to lean, fast-draining soils. Avoid wet, poorly drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize in early spring and prune to within several inches above the ground to promote dense growth and heavy bloom.|
