Dip-dye your daily experience with colorful flowering perennials. Now, even plant lovers who live on tiny lots or care for a balcony garden can surround themselves with saturated color all season-long.

Marcus Salvia (Salvia nemorosa 'Haeumanarc') is a new dwarf version of the exquisite May Night Salvia. With its compact, dense growth, it is easy to accommodate in either the ground, or used as a gorgeous "Filler" in garden containers.

The rich, bold hues of this flowering eye candy starts in June and keeps on coming through fall. Saturated spikes of violet-blue flowers rise high above mounds of airy, gray-green foliage.

Marcus Salvia is a magnet for butterflies, honey bees, and hummingbirds. But thankfully, deer tend to steer clear!

Weave them all along the sunny edge of your shrub borders. Mass them to solve bare, open ground with their mysterious dark purple-blue flower spikes and lush, gray-green mounding foliage.

Heat-loving Salvia performs beautifully with minimal care. Take the opportunity to trim nearly spent flowers regularly...and you'll gain an exciting vertical accent in cut flower arrangements.

Doing this actually encourages additional flushes of flowers! This winter-hardy plant makes very elegant container gardens, especially when massed as a single species in oversized pots.

Give Marcus Salvia full sun, where they'll get at least six hours of sunlight. Ensure the soil drains quickly, especially during winter.

Slope plantings are a great way to use this durable selection. They'll even help control erosion for you!

Turn your house into the "party house" for your local butterflies with thoughtful, colorful plantings. Order Marcus Salvia from our native pollinator plant experts today!
