After three or four years of doing diddly squat, it appears my Phlomis russeliana is about to bloom.

Every day, it has grown taller and taller.

I understand from friends that grow this plant that it will take its time settling into place, but once it does, it tends to bloom faithfully. Like many fuzzy-leaved plants, it requires little water but a lot of sun. The foliage rosette is evergreen for me in US Zone 7.
