Botany picture #97: Phlomis viscosa
Phlomis viscosa (Lamiaceae), Botanic Garden of Zürich, 2010. As mentioned before, the mint family Lamiaceae is one of my favorite plant groups, and in the case of Phlomis I am not alone. There are several ornamentals in the genus, and apparently some people collect the species, although it is of course nowhere near as popular as cacti or orchids.
