Salvia nemorosa 'Marvel Rose'

Salvia nemorosa, also known as woodland sage, is a perennial herb originating from Europe and Western Asia. The cultivar ‘Marvel Rose’ has some of the largest flowers of any salvia nemorosa. Its graceful stature, reaching around 14 to 16 inches, is adorned with lance-shaped, gray-green leaves emitting a delightful fragrance when crushed. The rose-pink flowers appear spring to fall. Not only admired for its aesthetic appeal, Salvia nemorosa also attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, enhancing its ecological significance.


Thriving in well-drained soil and full sunlight, this salvia is a hardy and drought-tolerant perennial, making it a popular choice for various garden settings, including borders and rock gardens. Regular pruning after flowering helps maintain its shape and encourages additional blooms.
