Blue Jean Baby Russian Sage is a compact woody perennial with fine aromatic grey-green foliage and upright silver stems.  Whorls of lavender to violet flowers on airy pinnacles cover the stems from summer to mid fall.  Best flowering in full sun and well-drained soils.  Drought tolerant once established.  DO NOT eat the leaves- they are mildly toxic, however the flowers are edible and have a peppery flavor.
