Salvia Blue Marvel flaunts ultra-large flowers; the largest of all the Salvia nemorosa species. Bright violet-blue flowers will entice hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators; however, the scented grey-green foliage keeps deer and rabbits from nibbling. Winning top honors in two prestigious shows, this tough performer truly is a Marvel!

In 2016, S. Blue Marvel was a Plantarium 2016 Gold Medal Winner and also won Best in Show at the HTA National Plant Show in the UK.

Salvia General Information

Salvia are excellent, easy-to-grow plants for a summer show of intense color. Salvia perform best in full sun. A real heat lover; they respond well to shearing after blooming to prompt fresh foliage and blooms.

Salvia Plant Care

Prefers moist but well-drained soil. Can be divided every 3 - 5 years in early spring. After blooming, cut down to basal growth, as new growth will be more appealing. May flop if given too rich soil or excessive shade. Blooms more profusely with regular watering. Dislikes a spot that is damp over the winter.
