Phlomis ‘Lemon Blush’
This new import is, to my mind, the most beautiful in foliage of all the Phlomis. At Lambley it has made a handsome, evergreen shrub a metre or more tall by nearly as much across in a year. The large felt-like leaves are silver grey on the upper surface and whitish grey beneath. When we first purchased a plant in France no one had seen this cross between a purple flowered form and a yellow flowered form in flower. The abundant flowers that result from this cross are soft lemon with a pink blush on the outer edge.180cm by 180cm but can be maintained smaller by pruning back by a third after flowering.
