Greek Jerusalem Sage
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 stems and flower clusters for fresh and dried decoration in the garden or kitchen.
PREORDER FOR MARCH 2023
An intriguing architectural marvel, this bushy Mediterranean perennial swaggers tall, muscular upright stems trimmed with whorled fuzzy lilac blooms above a grand evergreen basal rosette. The unique hooded flowers emphasize rosy-pink lips plus purple calyces, while close-knit heart-shaped green leaves sport scalloped margins, gray flip sides and a downy finish. Undaunted by drought, bunnies or deer, easy-care Phlomis samia’s strong vertical habit can invigorate sunny banks, water-wise plantings and large rock gardens.
Size: 3-1/2' – 5' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.
