About Me Master Gardener
I have a modified mound septic area that needed something to hide it. I decided on a xeriscape because of the sandy/gravelly soil. My Phlomis Russenliana is in a nursery bed and thrived over the summer here.I'm looking forward to it's performance in the new garden location.

By Grandma Jennie
from Burns, Oregon
The product description for the Phlomis (I purchased both the yellow & lavender flowered varieties) doesn't seem enough, the leaves on the russeliana are at minimum 5" X 9", fuzzy and disease free. Give it lots of room, this is a very hardy perennial, ours was planted just last fall, buried under four feet of snow for nearly four months, and came up like crazy the second the ground thawed. Wonderful plant, grew to three ft. tall just this first season. Very highly recommended.

Unique Short Plant
By Mean Jean
from Eastern Colorado
Despite the description of a tall plant, it is actually short--about 5"- 6". The tallness is in the flower stalk, which in eastern Colorado shoots up in May and blossoms in mid-June. The blossoms last about 2-weeks.For us, this plant spreads slowly. It's been in our garden 4 years, and now needs weeded out. It was first planted in the shadow of Russian Sage. It didn't begin blooming until its second season--give it a chance.After its yellow blossoms are gone, it looks unique for awhile. Then it gets ratty-looking, and I chop off the stalk. The remaining foliage is pretty.
Nice leaves, no flowers
from Chicago, Il
The leaves came up very early and have persisted. But despite following planting directions and putting in the spot that was recommended for light, water, soil etc., there isn't a single bloom. I bought these for the flowers and am very disappointed. Everything I've read said to expect flowers early to late spring. It's now the end of June and nothing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Jerusalem Sage great in West Texas
from Abilene, TX
Jerusalem Sage grows in my clay soil with little water after getting started. Unusual flowers--yellow whorls. Some are in a garden that gets water. Others in a back rocky area that gets very little water and much sun. All do well. No insect or disease problems. Will start blooming well the second or third year. Roots easily from cuttings. Requires a little trimming to keep in shape. Can be moved easily. Good as cut flower.

So far, so good
By Embassy Gardener
from Fort Washington, MD
About Me Professional Landscaper
Phlomis Russeliana got off to a slow start, but my soil is hard clay. The plants survived drought, and a severely cold winter. Animal pests have not bothered them. In their second year, half of them are blooming. I am still evaluating to determine how long the bloom season is, and if they will re-bloom. Otherwise, a beautiful flower and nicely textured bold foliage for the front of a border.
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.
