Jerusalem sage

Jerusalem sage (which is called Phlomis fruticosa as well as Phlomis cretica for a very slightly different variety) is invading the island at the moment, covering large tracts of land with its bright yellow flowers.
It is from the sage family but doesn't have the smell you'd expect from sage. In fact, the hair that brushes off easily from it's leaves is irritating to the eyes and the lungs and might make you cough and sneeze.
