Cistus hybridus - Rock Rose

Cistus hybridus - Rock Rose

Mounds of wavy-margined, evergreen, aromatic leaves are accompanied by yellow-centred, papery white flowers, which emerge from crimson buds in June to July. This wonderful, bushy rock rose is one of the hardiest, compact varieties. It is ideal for a large, patio container or a sunny, shrub border, but it does require protection from harsh winds.
