Delve into the fascinating world of Phlomis russeliana, also known as Turkish sage, a beautiful flowering plant native to the southwest regions of Asia in Turkey and Syria. Belonging to the Lamiaceae family, this herbaceous perennial grows to a striking height up to 3 ft, presenting upright, hairy stems adorned with arrows of textured, grey-green leaves that resemble sage. Admire the uniquely structured formation of green buds that develop in leaf axils during summer, offering a distinctive tiered appearance. Once blooming, delight in clusters of dull yellow hooded flowers, adding a vibrant charm to any garden. Frequently mistaken for its close relative P. samia, Turkish sage thrives in moist soil under full sun and endures in all temperate zones, even in freezing temperatures down to -4°F. The long-lasting flowers present architectural interest even during winter, as the dried flower-heads linger for months and abundant seeds await propagation each spring. Lauded for its ornamental beauty, Phlomis russeliana has rightfully received the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. With its stunning aesthetics and resilient nature, this plant is an ideal choice for any striking garden landscape.
