Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

The Ficus lyrata, commonly called the fiddle-leaf fig, is a perfect indoor specimen plant. The plant features very large, heavily veined, and violin-shaped leaves that grow upright on a tall plant.

Russian Sage

Posted by on July 12th 2009 in blog

Perennial of the Week: Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) I tend to get excited about Russian Sage – after all, where can one find a perennial that gets up to four feet tall, features huge clusters of airy blue flowers, is super hardy to Minnesota, attracts butterflies,  is drought tolerant and blooms from late June into fall? Perovskia is neither Russian nor a sage… Native to Afghanistan and Tibet, Russian Sage…
