Koot, where do you load your photos from? I can never see them at work....

Greg, nice Hosta bed, I've never thought of filling mine so full.... Hmmm, I could free up a LOT more space in my garden.... 8)

Forgive me, Betty, for butting in here. But I think I can safely say that Phlomis tuberosa is at least hardy to zone 1b. Here it is growing in my garden. I would also add that I think it prefers well drained soil.
