Picturesque Flora at the Zoo

Local News

Native to Asia, the Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) is a perennial bushy plant with spectacular little flowers that can serve as excellent additions to both traditional and modern gardens.

The Russian sage has an erect to spreading habit and can grow up to 1 meter tall, with greyish white buds and tiny toothed leaves that have an aromatic scent when crushed. It has gorgeous lavender or dark blue flowers growing in panicles, highly appealing to bees and butterflies. Rather drought-tolerant, it prefers warm and sunlit spots, blooming between July and September.
