  1. Some times ago my nick name was Phlomis 🙂

    Now that’s what I call textural! Lovely images – the type you can look at for a long time.

    It is almost invasive in my garden, it seeds every where. Yesterday I bought the pink phlomis I’ve been looking for for ages.

    • One man’s gift, another man’s invasive! Oh, I envy you the P. tuberosa. I’ve been looking for ages too, only to find one in a garden centre all shrivelled up, too far gone to try a rescue. 😦

  5. Fabulous phlomis photos, such a photogenic plant in flower or seed. Alas, the more subtle pink herbaceous ones like Samia or Amazone don’t do as well for me as the yellow shrubby forms which are very easy to grow from cuttings.
