Phlomis 'Edward Bowles' is a superb and superbly unknown perennial that needs rescuing from the jaws of obscurity. Phlomis 'Edward Bowles' is a hybrid (Phlomis fruticosa x Phlomis russeliana) that originated in 1965 at Hillier's Nursery in England from seed reportedly sent by the late E.A. Bowles. Our plant came from California's former Western Hills Nursery. The spade-like leaves with felty green tops and silver underneath adorn the 3' tall x 3' wide evergreen clump. In spring, the vigorous and very easy-to-grow, deer-resistant clumps are topped with 6-10" spikes of large, light/dark bicolor yellow, snapdragon-like flowers...stunning!
