Perovskia are deciduous sub-shrubs with highly fragrant and attractive variable leaves that hold large spires of compact flowers from late summer. These shrubs have woody stems and are both drought-tolerant and easy to maintain. They look their best in flower beds and borders within informal, cottage and courtyard gardens. You should expect to see Perovskia grow to an approximate height and spread of 60cm (24”).
Perovskia are best planted in well-drained soil of chalk, sand and loam within an acidic, alkaline and neutral PH balance. Loosen the soil before planting to a depth of around 30cm (12”), mixing in a layer of compost to improve growing conditions. After planting, ensure that you water your plants deeply and thoroughly to settle the soil and to encourage healthy root system.
Perovskia should be hard pruned to a few inches tall, just as they are beginning to produce leaves – this is usually but not always undertaken in mid-April. Once you have pruned Perovskia, you may wish to apply a generous layer of mulch consisting of well rotted garden compost around the base of the shrub to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
