Description

(10-12" tall x 10-12" wide) 'Rose Marvel' Meadow Sage (Salvia) explodes with vibrant color in late spring and will keep on blooming for many weeks without shearing or deadheading. The orchid pink, two-lipped flowers are the biggest of all pink meadow sages, and will attract pollinators, including hummingbirds and butterflies. Like all Salvia, 'Rose Marvel' has textured leaves that are highly resinous and fragrant – making weeding a pleasure when you brush against the strong stems of this perennial favorite. Thankfully, deer and rabbits aren't as excited by that scent and tend to ignore salvia in the landscape. Use 'Rose Marvel' as a burst of color in a rock garden, perennial bed, or container arrangement. Select a sunny, well-drained spot and plant in spring or fall, keeping evenly moist in the first year as the plant establishes itself. Salvias prefer full sun and can flop or succumb to disease in shady moist conditions. Once established, 'Rose Marvel' is a drought-tolerant star. (Salvia nemorosa)
