It’s tough as…STEEL!
A perennial first: Grow high-quality, affordable Perovskia from professional-grade seed. Blue Steel has higher and much more uniform germination than other seed varieties so you’ll grow top-notch plugs easily and efficiently. No vernalisation or overwintering is needed, so production time is slashed. And grown beside leading vegetative varieties, you can’t see a difference.

  • Sturdy, controlled habit in the landscape is comparable to the vegetative leader.
  • Aromatic, silvery foliage carries clouds of small blue flowers on strong silver stems that do not break or split easily. 
  • High flower show rate with 1 to 3 plugs per 1-gallon container or 3 to 5 per 2-gallon container. 
  • It’s affordable to use multiple plugs in each pot and always finish with huge retail appeal.
  • Pinch for optimal branching. 
  • Heat/drought tolerant, very hardy.
