Russian sage does best in a rich soil with full sun all day long. Lack of sun can cause a wispy plant. There are also some varieties that are heftier than others and there may be some variation among seed grown plants in terms of the plants' bulk. You might try trimming it back hard in late spring to force it to branch more.
