Perovskia atriplicifolia
Russian Sage

With maturity, Russian Sage not only develops a wide, woody crown, but also suckers from the roots, forming a perennial colony that is a mass of green-gray foliage on ascending or angled stems in early Summer. When brushed against or bruised, the aromatic foliage betrays its membership in the Mint Family (confirmed by its opposite leaves on square stems).
