phooled by phlomis


I have a tendency to overplant. Last year the miscanthus and the barberry totally engulfed the phlomis. I took action by digging up the phlomis, dividing it and putting it in a few other locations to see where it wanted to be. Much to my surprise, these beautiful, architectural whorls of yellow blossoms appeared in the original location, just as I had envisioned. We can’t see the rosette of felty leaves, but the combination is quite striking, don’t you think? Just beyond the frame of the picture, above and to the right, stands an echinops with many steel blue spiky balls rising above thistle-like foliage. The new divisions in their new locations are no where near as dramatic, but I suspect they will surprise me in future with ideas of their own.
