Garden sage Interesting Notes

‘Marcus’ is a dwarf clump-forming perennial salvia with deep violet flowers that typically grows to only 8-10” tall. This cultivar was discovered growing as a naturally occurring mutation of S. nemerosa ‘Osfriesland’ in Germany in 1998. Erect, deep violet flower spikes appear in a lengthy summer bloom. Lance-shaped, green leaves (to 3” long). Flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies. U. S. Plant Patent PP13,322 issued December 3, 2002. It should be noted that ‘Marcus’ was patented under the cultivar name of ‘Haeumanarc’, but The Royal Horticultural Society currently lists it as ‘Marcus’ with no mention of ‘Haeumanarc’. - Missouri Botanical Garden

Salvia
 comes from the Latin salvere, meaning to heal or save.

The leaves are aromatic when crushed.
