Phlomis delights with dense whorled clusters of lavender-pink flowers blooming in tiered intervals up the well-branched, burgundy red stems. Plant forms a mound of scalloped heart-shaped foliage at the base; for the finale, ornamental seed heads develop in summer and remain attractive fall into winter.
