I've just ordered Kashmir Sage for spring planting so I was checking out the comments about this plant. To the person who's sage flowers are yellow instead of lavender-pink, I believe you have Jerusalem Sage, Phlomis russeliana, which has yellow flowers, instead of Phlomis cashmeriana, Kashmir Sage. Hope this helps.

Plant Select has the USDA zone as 4b-8 ("up to at least 7,000' "). What I'd like to know is what it looks like in the winter given that it's described ( plantselect.org), as "seedheads are highly ornamental in fall and winter." Anyone have a pictures or found a link for one?
