Vivid Violet in a Small Package
The Salvia ‘Marcus’, Salvia nemorosa, (PPAF) is a new dwarf version of the Salvia ‘May Night’. With its compact, dense growth, it is easy to accommodate in any perennial garden.
Marcus produces spikes of intense violet-blue flowers bloom on top gray-green foliage and flower from June to October. ‘Marcus’ has a plant height of 12” and a spread of 12-18”.
Salvia ‘Marcus’ should be planted in full sun in a moist well-drained area. To increase bloom time, it should be cut back after the first bloom. ‘Marcus’ is a magnet for butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds and is deer-resistant.
This salvia does very well in heat. It is beneficial to sheer salvia after blooming to promote fresh foliage and blooms. Marcus may be divided every 3 to 5 years in early spring.
It is hardy for container gardening, as a border plant and provides excellent cut flowers.
