Salvia nemerosa 'Marcus'

Details

Put on a fine display with this perennial sage. Deep blue flower spikes appear above neatly formed mounds of very fragrant leaves. Makes a great container plant too!

Remove faded flowers and water a little to keep the blooms coming well into the fall. Excellent in front of the border and in containers. Salvia is easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. It prefers moist, gravelly or sandy soils with good drainage, but tolerates drought. It's flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies. ‘Marcus’ is a dwarf clump-forming perennial salvia with deep violet flowers that typically grows to only 8-10” tall. This cultivar was discovered growing as a naturally occurring mutation of S. nemerosa ‘Osfriesland’ in Germany in 1998.
