Phlomis tuberosa ‘Amazone’
at Digging Dog

Phlomis

Jerusalem Sage

Drought resistant and hardy, this genus belongs to the Mint family and includes about 100 perennials and subshrubs from the Mediterranean and western Asia. Well suited to our California climate, many of the species will thrive in warm, sunny sites and dry woodland edges.

Whorls of purple, pink or yellow flowers bloom in the summer, providing long lasting dry stems and flower clusters for decoration in the garden or kitchen.

Phlomis tuberosa ‘Amazone’ full sun  partial shade

With green arrow-shaped lush leaves, lustrous burgundy stalks and tiered wreaths of rosy lilac tubular flowers on statuesque stems, this well-mannered perennial adds dignity to the landscape. The toothed downy leaves compose a vigorous bushy base that’s nearly evergreen in many locales and capable of handling drought.

Versatile and equally at home in a formal setting or a meadow planting, ‘Amazone’ can be staged amid Stachys ‘Superba’ and Salvia ‘Amethyst’ for a fantastic purple and pink mélange.

Blooms June – August.

Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide. Zone 4/5.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered a few things and had a pleasant experience. Email communication was prompt. The plants themselves arrived swiftly, were very well packed and were very large and had impressively healthy root systems. I would definitely order from them again.”
