'Blue Marvel' is a dwarf Meadow Sage that grows to one foot or less in height, but doesn't skimp on the flower size. Bright and showy indigo blooms are some of the biggest to appear on any sage, yet the overall size of this compact plant makes it perfect for borders, containers, or coaxing into a groundcover. Highly attractive to pollinators but unappealing to deer and rabbits. PPAF (Salvia nemorosa)

      Comments about American Meadows Sage Blue Marvel:

      I ordered just one of these plants to add texture to my garden, it was slowing growing at first (I planted last fall), but now it is in full bloom and looks amazing! Like out of a story book. I will definitely order more of these. The butterflies and hummers love it too!

          Comments about American Meadows Sage Blue Marvel:

          Order only in the spring, unless you live in the South. My order was shipped in the fall, and only one of eight plants survived. American Meadows said, "When fall planting, it is important to ensure that new transplants will have a minimum of six (6) weeks in the ground for root acclimation before they are exposed to freezing temperatures. As shipping for our fall planting season does not begin until mid to late September, this may not provide enough time for your plants to fully acclimate before encountering freezing temperatures in a zone 5 location."

          Q & A

          Plant With These:

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
