What is the name of this yellow garden flower?
I see a lot of these flowers around here in France in the gardens and outside in the streets. The plant looks beautiful with its nice velvet light green foliage and wonderful yellow flowers. Please, help me to identify this plant. What is the common and botanical name of this flower? Thank you.
Plant with the yellow flowers
Yes, it looks like Phlomis fruticosa or Jerusalem sage. It is a flowering plant of the Lamiaceae family with the sage-like, aromatic oval, grey-green with white undersides, and covered with fine hairs leaves and yellow flowers. The specific epithet fruticosa means “shrubby”. Jerusalem sage is a popular ornamental plant.
