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

    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.
