Comments:

The first time Russian sage has been available as a first year flowering perennial. Heat, frost, and drought tolerant. Taiga features plants with long flower spikes of sky blue that beautifully set off the silvery green foliage. Considered a hardy perennial in Zones 5 and higher, its heat and drought tolerance makes it perfect for both landscaping and as an accent plant.

  • Online vegetable and flower seed websites
  • Mail order seed catalogs
  • Seed packets in retail stores
  • Or as bedding plants at garden centers
