I am not a big fan of Russian everything. I don’t like vodka, borscht or caviar, and once I hurt myself – under the influence of vodka – that impossible Russian Kosak dance when one falls asleep and first stretches one leg and then the other. They broke parts of my body that I did not know. Slow Cajun Two-step is more my style.
Maybe I’ll paint it with a very wide brush, however. Beat me Russians as friendly, generous and hardworking people. And I appreciate their strength. Russian winters require.
And it should be noted that, for plant lovers, the motherland of Russia is home to many wonderful plant species. I really like Perovsky, also known as Russian Sage. It is a beautiful yearly tree, about 4 feet tall and broad, with long, majestic trunks covered with small gray leaves. The leaf grows boldly in the garden. At the end of the summer, the gray stems of this plant appear to explode in small overnight flowers. A strong, clever scent is released.
Perovsky is a very difficult and beautiful year. In southern Russia, the Ural Mountains and parts of Afghanistan and Tibet have been ruled by the Yak Constitution for more than a century. As a result, the weather in Oklahoma has no agreement with this summer flower.
Plant Perovskia in a very warm and sunny room in the garden. Early fall is a good time to plant. And to prevent the foot from spreading, cut it back to the ground every spring before new growth begins. In mid-May, I cut in half the new growth. This produces more stems and doubles the number of flowers in summer. Cruel, poorly drained soil This Russian beauty is unbearable.
