Perhaps too much shade
By Front Range Gardener
from Fort Collins, CO
About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Phlomis cashmeriana:
I have seen these looking quite nice in sunny locations. I purchased two because it is listed as one of the few plants for full shade. I have it planted in the "deep" shade window well with amended soil and have some other shade plants doing well down there, but in two seasons now it has never done anything but leaf out and hasn't gotten more than a foot tall which is much less than I had hoped for.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Surviving but not thriving.
from Denison, TX
About Me Getting Started
See all my reviews
To be fair to this poor plant, last season (its first), we had record rains, and this year we've had early triple-digit heat indices. I planted it in a fourteen-inch pot and placed it in an area with only a couple of hours of sun last year - it had nice foliage but never bloomed, so this year I moved it to an area with more sun. It bloomed but hasn't gained much in size. My experience with other sages has been that they sometimes perform better the second or third year, so we'll see how the fall and next year go. It definitely gets extra points for toughness! I probably wouldn't recommended it for this area unless it improves its performance.
Merchant response: Good Day Robin,Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! While we do send plants with very healthy root systems, perennials will not grow as rapidly as annual flowers. Planted in the garden, most perennials will require 2-3 growing seasons to reach the mature size listed in the plant description. Patience, good soil preparation and attention to new transplants will reward you with much pleasure and beauty over the years! Please know that we are truly committed to your success which is why we fully guarantee all of our products up to a year from the day your order has shipped. Please keep us posted on the progress of your Cashmere Sage. Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to call us at 1-800-925-9387 Our hours are Monday - Friday 7am - 5pm MTHappy Gardening!

While I am new-ish to my region, I am not new to gardening. Always looking for plants that will diversify my beds. Have been very pleased with most of my other High Country Gardens starts, this one just didn't take off. Following the website guide, I put it in a spot where it got morning sun, afternoon shade. It is classified as a sage - it was planted in understory - was that the problem? Will be interested to see if it comes back in the spring.
Merchant response: We appreciate your feedback on the Phlomis cashmeriana. This plant should thrive in zones 5-9 in anywhere from full sun, half sun / half shade to full shade. We certainly appreciate your willingness to give the plant another season before determining that it has not survived. Keep in mind that we do have a full guarantee so if this plant fails to grow for you this spring, please contact us and we will be happy to go over some resolution options with you. Thank you for your patience! Happy Gardening!

Anywhere you have Soil!
By J in Colorado
from Denver area
This phlomis will grow anywhere---sun or shade, moist or xeric! Benefits from a little extra water. It has taken a couple of transplants without complaint, but as a result has not yet sized up to the 3'plus I've observed in local Denver demonstraton gardens. Summer flowers are nice, though not overly showy; but the winter presence--tiered fountains of seed heads--is outstanding. Larger foliage is nice contrast to a lot of the fine leaves of many xeric plants. Very easy to grow, tolerant of all kinds of conditions.
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.
