Full Description

We selected this Russian sage because of its strong stems and neat, upright habit. Rocketman produces very aromatic foliage, on strong stems each topped with large, lavender-blue flowers beginning to bloom in mid-summer and lasting through October. Plants are ideal for large containers in city gardens and smaller spaces. PPAF

Life Cycle
Perovskia (Russian Sage), Rocketman is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Already have some flowers I have purchased this plant before, and my hubby had to dig up my flowers to do some plumbing work, so I bought this again. I planted the plants as soon as I got them and already have little flowers on the plants. This plant loves the sunny side of my house and stays blooming from July to early -mid November for me. The bees love it and I even catch a butterfly having a go at it every now and then. Thanks Burpee!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor growth I purchased several of these plants a few years ago and they might be about 12 inches high, they are still just a single stem - very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Total Waste of my Money! I spent 12.95 per plant for Russian sage. I read the description, thought that for 12.95 per plant I would receive a nice specimen. Woe is me - I got a 3 inch tall start, totally dried out (and I rescued it less than 30 minutes after delivery - I have the UPS notice to prove it) that may or may not survive. Look at the pictures...if you were walking through a nursery would you pay 12.95 each for what is pictured? Unbelievable!
