Planting Guides

Phlomis (Jeruselum Sage) - a huge genus of sage-like plants that range from Europe across Asia into China. Almost completely resistant to browsing deer and rabbits.

Preferred growing conditions
  • Plant in most soil types including clay. Generally, they prefer to be planted in a full sun location. Phlomis cashmeriana is an exception and does well in part to full dappled shade.
  • Mulch with common mulching materials except of moisture climates where plants should remain unmulched.
  • Water regularly the first growing season to establish the plant. Thereafter, weekly or bi-weekly deep watering is all this plant needs.
  • Deadheading is will not bring the plants back into flower, but keeps the attractive foliage looking tidy. Cut tall flowering stems where they emerge from the mound of low foliage.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.
  • Special comments
  • Phlomis seed heads are ornamental and provide winter interest; leave standing over the winter and cut off in early to mid-spring along with the old foliage.
  • Many species can be divided in mid-spring if more plants are needed.
  • These are low care perennials that don't like rich soil or a lot of water; this makes the plants leggy and prone to flopping.

Q & A

Suggested Companion Plants:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
