This genus belongs to the Mint family and includes about 100 perennials as well as subshrubs from the Mediterranean and western Asia. Drought-resistant and hardy, many of the species will thrive in warm sunny sites and dry woodland edges. Ornamental whorls of purple, pink or yellow blooms open in the summer, providing long-lasting dry stems and flower clusters for decoration in the garden or kitchen.
With architectural assertiveness, stout straight stems broadcast separate whorls of butter yellow hooded blooms. Maintaining a stalwart beauty throughout the winter, the stalks look equally impressive whether fresh or dried as they stand above large and broad, heart-shaped olive-green leaves. The fuzzy, scalloped foliage develops into a plush low growing, evergreen cover that keeps those pesky weeds at bay.
In our garden, Phlomis russeliana casts bold accents along a pathway, assorting with Aster ‘Ringdove’ and Molinias.
Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0" & spreading wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
