Salvia nemorosa, Marvel Rose, is a beautiful perennial plant that produces showy pink flowers. It is native to Europe and Asia, and has been introduced to North America. Salvia nemorosa thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-drained soils. It is relatively easy to grow and is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions.
Water Salvia nemorosa regularly during the growing season, but allow the soil to dry out somewhat between waterings. Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer. Pinch back the stems of young plants to encourage bushier growth. Marvel Rose is generally pest and disease free, but can be susceptible to root rot if overwatered.
Salvia nemorosa is a lovely addition to any garden, providing color and interest from spring through fall. With proper care, it will thrive for many years.
