Salvia Marcus is a true dwarf meadow sage, growing only to be 8-12” tall. Although small in stature, this Salvia produces plentiful, dense purple blooms and is extremely easy to grow. Deadheading any spent flowers can help this plant to produce more lateral buds. Salvias benefit from being able to dry out between deep, thorough waterings. #PP13322 (Salvia nemerosa)

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).
