Salvia Marchus, 8"-12", The perfect Salvia for planting in containers or as an edging. Marcus is a dwarf form of Salvia growing to only around 12 inches tall. The intense dark purple flowers will remain all summer if regularly deadheaded. Plants are very compact and bushy and have very nice olive-green foliage.   Plants look very good when planted with soft yellows such as Coreopsis 'Creme Brulee'.
