hardy to zone 6 with protection

Bog sage does not stay erect of its own accord in any kind of shade - therefore makes a great companion to weave through shrub roses as it it too graceful to smother them (at least in my garden - others report that this plant goes on rampages - maybe they have wetter gardens - mine is pretty dry, with clay).
