Description

Phlomis tuberosa ‘Bronze Flamingo’ produces abundant lavender pink hooded flowers, which are borne on dark burgundy stems. The plant lends an architectural quality to the garden and blooms from late spring through summer. It is hardy in most parts of New Zealand, and if you live in an area which gets frost or snow then you will be delighted with the striking sight of hoar frost on the seed heads.

It likes full sun with well drained fertile soil and medium moisture, but can also tolerate some drought and thus is useful in dry gardens. It is attractive to bees and butterflies.
It was awarded the prestigious RHS ‘Award of Garden Merit’ in 2012
