Jerusalem Sage

This is Phlomis russeliana, Jerusalem Sage.  It has a nice spot in the front garden under the canopy of a forsythia bush.

It is not a bold plant that catches your eye in a landscape, but it has very interesting flowers.

I don't do anything for this plant.  It gets water when it rains and when I run the soaker hoses for the planting beds.  It comes back each year and blooms.  Super easy.

  1. Gotta love those easy plants...when I read it's name I imagined it to be purple...

  2. I not only haven't heard of this one before but haven't seen it before either. Very interesting blooms on it.

  3. I've never seen this plant although I have heard of it.

  4. That is the best kind of plants to have... Our Autumn Joy Sedum is like that... Takes no work at all --and they just keep on coming back!!!!

    Love your Jerusalem Sage... So pretty.

  5. I hadn't heard of that one either. .wondering where you found it? Intriguing yellow blooms for sure!!

  6. Looks like a great plant that is reliable and green! I like the ones that require as little effort as possible:)

  7. I love that plant and wish I had one for my garden. It sounds like a wonderful plant too. Do you save seeds? (hint, hint) LOL!
