Plants I'm growing: First Blooms--Phlomis (May 23, 2010)

First blooms of 2010 today on the purple-pink Phlomis on the side of the house, by the white Japanese plum. I believe this is Phlomis purpurea, although it may be Phlomis italica. In any case, it's a nice change from the yellow of most types of Phlomis--not that I have any objection to the yellow Phlomis species. This plant bloomed on May 26 in 2009. Therefore, a year according to this plant was 362 days.
