October 2016 – Perovskia ‘Blue Steel’ is a strong performer from PanAmerican Seed. Its sturdy, controlled habit in the landscape is comparable to the vegetative leader.
The aromatic, silvery foliage carries clouds of small blue flowers on strong silver stems that do not break or split easily. It has a high flower show rate with one to three plugs per one-gallon container or three to five per two-gallon container. Pinch for optimal branching. ‘Blue Steel’ is heat/drought tolerant and very hardy. panamseed.com
