Hello, 

Would be grateful if anyone could ID this plant that has recently appeared amongst my border. Wondered if it was a river based plant?

Many Thanks

Stephen

    Phlomis russeliana aka Turkish or russian sage. (though not a salvia).
    It will have yellow flowers then the old stems are quite architectural if you leave them for winter.

    They look like Phlomis Russeliana, Turkish sage.

    Hi, Thanks for the super quick replies. I did wonder if itwould flower. Heaven knows how it got here although I do live a 2 min walk to Roy Lancaster’s old stomping ground of Moss Bank Park Rock Garden. Must have blown up the lane! It sits nicely in the shaded part of my garden.
    Thanks Again Stephen.
