Description

If you are looking for a bright impactful bloom that will stand out in the crowd then Salvia 'Rose Marvel' is an absolute hero! Our ever-popular Salvia; 'Rose Marvel' is a strikingly beautiful dwarf perennial with super large flowers and aromatic grey-green leaves. It is small and mighty; a compact clump forming perennial with an intense flurry of rose-pink flowers that will wonderfully fill the low spots in your borders with a striking pop of colour. The plant is compact yet intense in a rich pink colour so will wonderfully fill the low spots in your borders yet catch your eye with its impact.  Perfect for those spaces in our garden that require a punch of colour, without adding too much work, 'Rose Marvel' will come to the rescue! They bring with them a few pollinators too as it is the one of the best pollinator attractors so you can see why it is a hugely popular Salvia. Salvia is resistant to a lot of diseases and even resistant to deer and rabbits! Rose Marvel is super easy to care for and requires very little maintenance. A few things that keep it happy are sunny sheltered spots in the garden with moist but well drained soil, it’s an easy balance to find, usually in your borders in those gaps we don’t know what to do with.  Once you pop it into its home, it will throw out plumes of colour all Summer long. Once the flowers fade, a quick trim, and it will flower again and again between June and October. Salvia 'Rose Marvel' is a perennial so will come back each year and is drought tolerant so a perfect little flower to pop in those places your hosepipe won’t quite reach. It suits a wide range of garden aesthetics too, what a beauty!

Planting Conditions

Salvia 'Rose Marvel' likes any position in the garden with a light level of sun. It prefers a sunny, but sheltered position and grows well in rich, fertile soils provided they are moist, but well-drained. If your soil does not drain that well we advise that you can add some sand or grit when planting which will help with this. You can tell if your soil is healthy if there is plenty of underground activity such as plant growth, earthworms and fungi. Alternatively, you can purchase a testing kit which will let you know what type of soil you have.

Watering & Feeding

Salvias can get all the moisture they need from rainfall; once established they are drought tolerant, so it is minimal maintenance if planted into your flowerbeds. Due to the thick foliage and flowers on our small and mighty Salvia 'Rose Marvel' we highly recommend watering regularly as rain rarely reaches the soil if your little one is in a pot. The best way to fertilise your Salvia is by removing any mulch and adding a 1-inch layer of compost. This is best done at the beginning of the Salvia flowering season in June.

General Care

Our Salvia heroically flowers all Summer if you can follow these few easy tips; as flowers fade, cut the flowers away as this will encourage the plant to keep producing new plumes of bright colour. Salvias like a well-drained soil so if your soil is clay soil your small but mighty plant would fare better in pots, containers or even window boxes.
