Phlomis lanata is endemic to Crete where it can be found growing on rocky soils along cliffs. Hence it handles hot dry conditions with good drainage. It is a low compact shrub to 60cm and over time 1.2m wide. The wooly grey leaves with a hint of gold make a well rounded mound. The lemon yellow flowers, arranged in whorls rise above the foliage in late Spring. Phlomis lanata received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 2002. It took us 3 years to really appreciate this fabulous plant as it is initially slow to grow. Now however, it draws attention even without flowers.
