Buy Phlomis italica phlomis: Ideal for the front of a sunny border

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: any fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: frost hardy

    In summer, this small evergreen shrub produces hooded, lilac-pink flowers that encircle the upright stems, creating a tiered effect. Perfect towards the front of a sunny border with well-drained soil, the woolly, grey foliage is aromatic, so it also makes a good candidate for a sensory garden.

  • Garden care: For the best results choose a sheltered site away from cold, drying winds and prune each year in mid-spring. Shorten any frost-damaged stems, cutting back to just above a healthy bud, and remove any weak or diseased shoots, cutting cleanly back to the base.
