I inherited in my garden what I take to be a phlomis fructicosa. It is very old, gnarled and more of a tree about 2m tall. The problem is that nothing seems to grow beneath it despite the fact that the area gets a fair amount of sunlight and is certainly not deep shade. Is this coincidence or is there something about the plant that inhibits growth of other plants?
