Common questions about growing Phlomis

1. What is the English name for Phlomis?

Jerusalem sage is the most widely used name for Phlomis, particularly for the species Phlomis fruticosa. This name is thought to originate from the plant's use in medieval Jerusalem, where it was grown for its medicinal properties and ornamental value.

Lampwick plant is a less common name for Phlomis, but it is still used occasionally. This name refers to the historical use of the plant's leaves as wicks for lamps. The leaves are densely felted with hairs, which made them ideal for this purpose.

2. Does Phlomis spread?

Phlomis can spread, but it is not considered to be invasive. The plant spreads by rhizomes, which are underground stems that produce new plants. This allows Phlomis to form colonies in its preferred habitats. However, the plant is not aggressive and will not outcompete other plants. In fact, Phlomis is a valuable addition to the garden because of its beautiful flowers and foliage.

3. Do Phlomis like sun or shade?

Phlomis plants prefer full sun to partial shade. They are tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions, including well-drained, sandy, and loamy soils. However, they do not like to be overwatered, so it is important to make sure that their soil drains well.

4. What is the difference between Phlomis fruticosa and Phlomis russeliana?

Phlomis fruticosa and Phlomis russeliana are two popular species of the Phlomis genus, both known for their striking yellow flowers and attractive foliage. While they share some similarities, there are also key differences between the two species.



5. Is Phlomis fruticosa toxic?

Phlomis fruticosa is not considered to be toxic to humans or animals. There is no record of any toxicity in humans or animals that have ingested Phlomis fruticosa. The plant is also not listed on any of the major poison control centre lists of toxic plants.

6. Is Phlomis russeliana Turkish or Jerusalem sage?

Phlomis russeliana is commonly known as both Turkish sage and Jerusalem sage. The name "Turkish sage" is more commonly used in the United States, while the name "Jerusalem sage" is more commonly used in Europe. Both names are accurate, as the plant is native to both Turkey and the Middle East.

The plant is also sometimes called "lampwick plant" because its leaves were once used as wicks for lamps. However, this name is less common than "Turkish sage" or "Jerusalem sage."

7. How big does Phlomis russeliana get?

Phlomis russeliana, commonly known as Turkish sage or Jerusalem sage, is an upright herbaceous perennial that typically grows to 60-90 cm tall and 60 cm wide. Its stems are erect and square, and its leaves are large, ovate, and grey-green in colour. The flowers are pale yellow and bloom in whorls from late spring to early autumn.
