Russian Sage is a woody perennial with fine aromatic grey-green foliage.   Whorls of pale blue flowers on airy pinnacles cover the foliage from summer into 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.
