Hi.... [wavey]
Has anyone ever heard or grown this plant? [dunno]
I watched a garden show on PBS Sunday in Springfield, Oregon and it was showing them and they were so pretty.
I would like to get some but i cannot find any places that have seeds or plants. [dunno]
I will try and look for them when i go out there in July. [flower]

It appeared to be a perennial on the show..
He had it outside in a long flowerbed.
Maybe its just available around Oregon? [dunno]

Sorry it was Jerusalem Sage...from a PBS show called Smart Gardening...

Plant ID- Salvia Family with Monica Guza and Dr. Allan Armitage

Plants in the Lamiaceae family all have square stems, opposite leaves and whorled flowers.

*Monica and Allan talked about these plants:

Phlomis or Jerusalem Sage. The most commonly grown is Phlomis russeliana. It is an evergreen perennial with large, rough heart-shaped leaves. Thick flower stems bear whorls of hooded, butter yellow flowers in summer. Cold hardy in zones 4-9 heat tolerance zones 9-1.

Sorry about getting the name worng...i knew it was Jerusalem something...i am always looking for strange name plants to grow...LOL

Jobes Tears, is a corn type of plant.. What I mean, it has long thin leaves like a corn stock.

Is that what you saw?//
