Growing Blue Marvel Sage

Salvias need close to full sun, and will grow near the coast in exposed locations. They are fully hardy, although their flowering season will be shortened somewhat in cold and windy places. They are happy on chalk, and like a light, well-drained but moist soil enriched with humus that doesn't remain wet in winter, so heavy clay is not good. They are perfect for a Mediterranean or gravel garden, and are great in large containers. Established plants are drought resistant, but still want fairly consistent moisture in dry summer periods to flower really well.
They are perfect for a Mediterranean or gravel garden, and are great in large containers.

Deadhead promptly to get the most from the flowering season. Leave the withered foliage on the plants overwinter for protection, and trim them after the last spring frost, right down to new growth.

Mulch lightly every year or two, ideally after a heavy spring rain when the soil has warmed up. Salvias don't need much fertility, so a little help goes a long way.

In Your Garden Design

A compact dwarf plant which makes it ideal for bedding. Why not mix it with pink or white petunias? Or for a classic look a plant with Carpet Patio Rose such as Rosa Pink Flower Carpet for a strong pink and purple colour combination or Rosa Gold Flower Carpet for a vibrant purple and yellow. The combination would work in a large container too with a trailing ivy over the sides and combined with a silver and white convolvulus cneorum.
