The Beauty of Phlomis

They may sound like a throat complaint, but I rather like these majestic herbaceous plants. They are tough as old boots, and in my garden their only enemy is the wind, as they grow to around 2 metres in height. I've had to stake them this year to prevent them toppling over, but I think they make a lovely statement in early summer.

These two stems are clearly in love!
