A rare and beautiful Phlomis from the region of the Judean mountains in Israel. Handsome evergreen foliage, hairy silver beneath and grey above with whorls of quite deep yellow claw-like flowers which are produced over a long period from spring into summer. Visitors frequently remark upon its unusual leaf form. It needs a well drained spot in full sun and needs just a little supplementary irrigation when being established and then none at all in most regions once established. 120cm x 120 cm.
