With its unique charm, Russian sage effortlessly enhances the beauty of late-summer ornamental grasses and perennials, making it an excellent companion plant. Its silver-grey spikes adorned with delicate tubular blossoms create an alluring contrast against the backdrop of the plant's ornately lobed leaves.

Ideal for mass plantings, this resilient species flourishes along pathways, where its sage-like fragrance can be enjoyed. Pair it with other silver-leaved plants for a captivating display, or create a stunning sunny border by planting it in generous swathes. This versatile perennial thrives even in challenging conditions, tolerating dry, chalky soil and salt-laden air with ease.

For optimal growth, March presents the perfect opportunity to trim back the Russian sage to its permanent framework, encouraging the development of lush, bushier foliage. Boost its vigor by generously applying a layer of well-rotted garden compost or manure, approximately 5-7cm (2-3in) deep, around the base of the plant.
