Phlomis russeliana – Jerusalem Sage


Phlomis russeliana is a justifiably popular plant due to its long flowering season. From late spring, right through to early autumn, whorls of hooded, soft yellow flowers appear at intervals on tall, erect stems with dramatic, heart-shaped leaves. It likes dry soil in the sun, and it is a magnet for bees and pollinating insects. Flowers can be cut or dried for indoor arrangements.
