Phlomis italica is commonly known as Balearic Island Sage. It is an evergreen bushy shrub with soft sage-like silver-green foliage covering tall upright stems. Whorls of double-lipped light pink flowers bloom throughout the summer.

Sheltered sunny situations with well-drained soils are best for Phlomis italica, which thrives in drought tolerant situations or south-facing borders. Softwood cuttings can be taken during the summer. Sandy soils are preferable to clay soils for this plant
