Perovskia Prime Time

New

Perovskia Prime Time

For late-season color and interest, you can't go wrong with Perovskia Prime Time. This improved version of 'Rocketman' delights gardeners with earlier blooms and denser flower spikes than its famed predecessor. Also known as Russian Sage, it brings pollinators of all kinds to the landscape. And with a long flowering time, drought tolerance and maintenance-free habit, this upgraded variety has quickly become a favorite. It features dusky purple calyxes with blue flowers—a real knockout in borders or cutting beds. Tolerates heat and humidity. PPAF
