Perovskia atriplicifolia, or Russian Sage, is a long-blooming, bushy, semi-woody, deciduous perennial or sub-shrub with long, upright, silvery stems, aromatic, grey-green leaves, and masses of small, tubular, lavender-coloured flowers, attractive to bees, butterflies and birds, in spring and summer. Russian Sage thrives in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils, in full sun, but can tolerate any type of soil, even poor ones, as long as they are well-drained. The root will rot in too wet soil. Resistant to heat, drought and salt, therefore, suitable for coastal areas. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Perovskia atriplicifolia is a wonderful, very adaptable, long-blooming plant, perfect for sunny dry landscapes, and cottage, coastal, gravel and rock gardens. Stunning when planted in groups or masses. Great for beds and borders, low divider hedges, as filler plants or for separating stronger colours. Brings Mediterranean feel to the landscape. Looks great when combined with ornamental grasses and yellow perennials.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
