- 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.

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).
