Phlomis purpurea close Phlomis purpurea whole

This very pubescent shrub grows mainly on the Iberian peninsula and prefers the exact stony barren habitat where we found it. The pale pink/purple flowers are supposed to bloom from April to June so we were lucky to find one shrub with the very first flowers showing in March.
