Peek-a-Blue Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia ‘WALPPB’)
Peek-a-Blue Russian Sage
Peek-a-Boo is one of the most consistently-beautiful, hardy plants you can have for your yard. A variety of Russian Sage, it was developed for its more compact form and shorter stature. Unlike other cultivars, Peek-a-Blue won’t droop from lankiness, and requires a lot less planting space.
Your Peek-a-Blue will grow to be an ethereal, silver-lavender companion in your yard. Its finely-dissected foliage has the effect of an almost lacy appearance, its silver-green stems and leaves bedecked with clusters of delicate, lavender/blue flowers.
The blossoms will appear mid-summer and last into fall, ensuring a steady stream of pollinating visitors. Hummingbirds and butterflies will adore your Peek-a-Blue, and they’re not the only ones to be drawn in closer. You’ll certainly want to kneel down and enjoy the fragrant, herbal scent the entire plant emanates.
It has an elegant, rounded habit that is far less leggy than other varieties. It is drought tolerant and does well in urban conditions. Deer will even leave it alone.
Russian Sage is one of those plants that every garden benefits from, and Peek-a-Blue is certainly an outstanding variety. Plant a few today and you’ll soon see why Peek-a-Blue is a favorite among expert and novice gardeners alike.
