The perfect Salvia for planting in
containers or as an edging. Marcus is a dwarf form of Salvia growing to only around 12
inches tall. The intense dark purple flowers will remain all summer if regularly
deadheaded. Plants are very compact and bushy and have very nice olive-green foliage.
Plants look very good when planted with soft yellows such as Coreopsis 'Creme Brulee'.
>> Salvia 'Marcus' is patented. USPP#13322
Plant in full sun and provide a rich well drained soil. Fertilize in early
spring with a top dressing of compost and bone meal. Liquid feed twice in summer
with fish emulsion or seaweed extract. Plants are considered to be drought tolerant
but will bloom much better if you will provide them with water during hot dry spells.
Deadhead spent flowers to promote heavier flowering.
