Phlomis fruticosa

Jerusalem Sage

This amazing Texas adapted perennial should be the first choice in many full sun Xeriscape designs in Austin. It is a bold flowering evergreen, and it’s very unusual and unique yellow blooms will explode in your Xeriscape during the spring. The foliage is attractive and quite special; children will just love touching its fuzzy texture all day long. Highly recommended for any and all full sun drought resistant landscape designs!
