This is a shorter more compact variety that is full and vigorous in the landscape. It has beautiful upright stems that resist flopping. This striking sage is one of the earliest to bloom with midsummer lavender-blue flowers and smoky purple calyxes that hold well into fall. The foliage is finely textured and has a light aroma and a complementary soft gray-green color. It is great in mass plantings or as a single accent.
