is this plant Phlomis Russelliana? Or any other suggestions? Not had flowers as yet.
It could be Phlomis. Hard to tell how big those leaves are, in isolation...
I don't think it's Phlomis russelliana, they have a very grey rough look to them and the manner of growth looks wrong. How long has it taken to reach that size?
I can take a photo tomorrow so you can compare
thanks for raising this one again aym, I'll get the camera out on the phlomis
Phlomis russelliana, with one little second flowering to prove what it is. I cropped out the brambles
It's a friend's plant who's recently moved and asked me what it was so I cant advise any further on details except that there are some seedlings present apparently.
Thank you for your help so far, Phlomis certainly have a more rough look to their leaves, puzzling. Primula was a suggestion too but was dismissed by friend.
