Sage Advise Russian Sage

No Comments

WhiteHouse Farm is proud to announce that we have Sage Advise Russian Sage. A perfect perennial for hot, dry climates and also exceptionally cold hardy. Perovskia can be used in a wide variety of environments with little attention through the season – a reason they have long been a staple of landscapers. Expect these plants to be a little later to emerge in spring, but also to offer color well into fall.

You would be wise to choose this Perovskia because it’s the darkest purple shade to date. Rich lavender purple flowers are produced on strong, upright plants filled with oval-shaped, notched leaves. This is early to bloom just like its counterpart ‘Denim ‘n Lace’, starting around late July in Michigan. Compared to ‘Denim ‘n Lace’, this is a slightly taller variety with darker purple calyxes and broader leaves, compared to the dissected leaves of the former.

We will have our Sage Advise Russian Sage available for Fall 2020.

Kniphofia (Red Hot Poker) Gold Rush

No Comments

We potted up a tray of Gold Rush Kniphofia a while back and did’t expect any blooms this year, but about two days ago we noticed stems pushing up through the foliage, followed by blooms. What a blessing to get a beautiful show! These plants are potted up in one gallon pots and are available now as a nice addition to your full sun location in your landscape. I don’t expect these to last very long so contact us to get yours now.
