(Russian Sage) For urban gardeners Perovskia 'Little Spire' was just not compact enough, so here we introduce its little brother, 'Peek-a-Blue'. The more compact habit of 'Peek-a-Blue' makes this a better choice for smaller gardens. Standing around 24 inches when in full bloom, 'Peek-a-Blue' can nicely be planted with shorter plants in a border, or use it as a airy filler in sparse areas of your garden. The silvery green foliage is very lacy creating a nice base for the lavender blue flowers that bloom from midsummer until the fall. The flowers make excellent cut or dried flower arrangements. 'Peek-a-Blue' is an improved dwarf selection that stays compact and does not flop over. An overall excellent perennial that is drought tolerant and virtually maintenance free.
