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.
Distinguished by an AGM and the unusual small potato-like tubers sprouting from its roots, this exceptional Phlomis is adorned with hooded dusty-lilac blossoms, nestled within reddish calyxes, and sturdy deep crimson-tinged flower stalks. Large, toothed arrow-shaped green foliage lends an appealing texture, while grasses and Lavenders make good company.
Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 12" wide.
