Salvia nemorosa 'Marcus'
Common Name: Sage Family: Lamiaceae (The Mint Family)

Salvia nemorosa 'Marcus'
Zoom In Photo:

This especially compact selection is a stunning addition to the front of the border. Spikes of intense violet-blue flowers top grey-green foliage on dense, shrub-like growth. Also good in pots. Very cold hardy. Show it off with Alchemilla mollis or backed by Senecio grayii 'Sunshine' (or anything with silver leaves).
