Phlomis fruticosa is more commonly known as Jerusalem sage. Its a small spreading, semi-evergreen shrub. Plants form a shrubby mound of woolly silver-grey leaves, bearing spikes of butter-yellow flowers arranged in tiers or layers. It is in leaf all year, in flower from July to August. The species is hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs) and is pollinated by insects.

Not surprisingly, Phlomis fruticosa is very drought-tolerant and does well in long dry Summers should we ever be lucky enough to get them. It appreciates good drainage and although it will put up with a poor soil it will grow more lush when given a rich but well-drained substrate.

Like all Phlomis species, Jerusalem Sage is very pollinator-friendly and the bees keep visiting it all Summer long. In Autumn it can either be cut back hard or the old flower-heads can be left to create skeletal points of interest in the grey days of Winter.
