Phlomis fruticosa

Common name Jerusalem sage
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6-10)
Flowers yellow (summer)
Size 2-4'
Light sun-part shade

Hairy gray-green leaves, with yellow flowers held in clusters at the ends of the stems through summer. Grown as a shrubby evergreen in warmer climates (USDA zones 8-10), it should be a regular die-back perennial in our zone 6 garden. Deadheading prolongs bloom.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
