Jerusalem Sage (Phlomis fruticosa) is neither a sage nor is it from Jerusalem. It’s a sage-like plant native to the The north eastern portions of the Mediterranean from Italy east to Turkey. Grows great here in San Diego even with no water or care.
I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
