Phlomis lanata

Phlomis lanata, originally uploaded by peganum.
A dwarf version of the well-known Jerusalem Sage. The flower heads are a similar dusky gold colour and the foliage is of much the same fuzzy grey green, but everything about the plant is neater and better shaped than the larger species. This is another plant previously thought to be too tender for most gardens, I've found it very easy to please so far, given full sun and free drainage. Height ultimately about 2ft, 4ft across. 
3L pots ~ £8
