Pink Phlomis

Pink flowered Phlomis blooms in the Mediterranean Garden at Dunedin Botanic Gardens, New Zealand. I’ve already posted photos today of the yellow flowered form in the same garden. Photos taken 24 November 2019.

Photos 1 and 2 taken by Nigel and the 3rd taken by Liz.

  1. I really like the pink form, especially with the silveriness of the leaves. Would be good in a relaxing planting scheme…so might use in it a spot for chilling out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes I think it could work really well with the right companions. It’s be interesting for instance to have Stachys byzantina (lamb’s ears) nearby. At the gardens the lamb’s ears were flowering at the same time – might post those next ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The pink is much more subtle than the rather loud yellows! We’ve always been keen on the yellow phlomis. Once we realised there’s a pink form we were pretty taken with that too. If I was using both I’d have them in separate garden beds though, with different colour schemes. It’d be quite fun to do ๐Ÿ™‚
