Hi Stacy, the Kew site says the following:

"Turkish sage is a hardy species of Phlomis, which can be grown in any good, well-drained soil, in sun or partial shade. It has a long flowering-period, stretching from late spring to early autumn. It does well in sunny borders in British gardens, and is drought tolerant when established. Propagation can be carried out by division of the clumps."

So it sounds like it doesn't really matter whether sun or partial shade. Apparently it does spread underground though.

We had the same problem when we owned a small cottage in France with 3000 m2. We found that we spent all our holidays just working on the house abd trying to keep the land under control, bit of a busmans holiday! After 5 years we sold it again.

I have one that flowers every year. It has to compete with Leillandi roots and never gets fed or watered unless it rains. I think they are a bit like buddleia, the less you do the better they are!

Be careful, if it's made in Japan or China it's probably rampant!

Morning all, are you all still asleep?

Verdun, ordered this hellebore yesterday, do you think the colour will come true? It's called "Hantay"

Would be great if it does, will have to wait and see.

Having a rest and shopping today, fog this morning but sun out now.

I agree with Bob, but break a piece off, if it smells of carbol it is not edible, otherwise, enjoy!
