Perovskia 'Longin'

Common Name: Russian Sage

Airy spikes of lavender-blue flowers top strong stems with small, narrow, silvery-green leaves. The foliage is not as dissected than the species and is similar to 'Little Spire'. 'Longin' also tends to have a narrower and more upright habit than others in this species.

This cultivar was introduced by Kurt Bluemel and is named after Swiss nurseryman, Longin Ziegler.
