LITTLE SPIRE RUSSIAN SAGE
More compact and more upright than the straight species. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Avoid wet soils and shade. It seems to thrive in hot summer weather. Leave it standing for winter interest, and cut it to the base in spring before new growth starts. It is drought tolerant and low maintenance. Good companion to rudbeckia, echinacea, grasses, sedum and nepeta. Pair Little Spire with yellow and pink flowers for nice color contrasts.
