Plant Species of the genus Phlomis

Information about this genus
Name: Phlomis
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Most species are quite frost hardy and are best planted in exposed sunny positions where the felted leaves can dry out quickly after rain. They are drought tolerant, to the point where they generally resent too much water in summer. Propagation is from seed or from tip cuttings of non-flowering shoots.
Description: This is a genus of about 100 low-growing shrubs, subshrubs and herbs in the nettle family, widely distributed through Europe and Asia from the Mediterranean to China. Most have felted leaves and tubular flowers, borne in whorls along the stems. The flowers have 2 lips at the tip, the upper lip being hooded over the lower one; they may be yellow, cream, pink, mauve or purple in color.
