Features

notes

The visual effect of Italica is soft and calming; the reality is a full hardy plant that thrives in a sunny, well drained border and is loved by bees. This evergreen shrub has wonderfully soft and velvety, spear-shaped leaves on strong, upright stems, punctuated with attractive soft hooded flowers.

Insights

Phlomis thrive in the sunshine and are the perfect plant for dry borders. The woolly grey foliage is aromatic so provides a sensory delight.
