Russian sage shrub
Do Russian sage shrubs or plants grow well at 8,000 feet in dry soil and, if so, will deer and elk eat them?

I believe Russian sage does do well at high altitudes (as long as the temperatures are not too cold; it is hardy to zone 5) and that it does very well in dry soil. The species is also said to be quite deer- and elk-resistant.
