The most well-known species of Phlomis, a fantastic multi-purpose plant to anchor your garden. The oldest plant in the OAEC Mother Garden at 50 years is a gnarled old specimen that has delighted us throughout those years. Much of the summer it produces architectural whorls of bright golden yellow hooded flowers that have a reservoir of nectar that attract butterflies and people, especially children, who litter the pathway with discarded flowers after emptying them of their yummily sublime sugary treat.
