Love echinacea and russian sage together! Purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) in the foreground, Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) in the middle, and Bee Balm (Monarda didyma) in the background. A GREAT COMBINATION!
Needs correct pruning in spring-Russian Sage along west side of house - likes full sun and heat. deer and drought resistant. feet high and wide blooms late summer to first frost. My favorite Russian Sage varieties are Rocketman and Denim N' Lace:
