  • Type of products available: 0/1/0A7, 0/1/1P8

Main asset

Plant very drought resistant, typical "crumpled" spectacular bloom.


Beyond the cold, Rock Roses fear winter moisture. Light pruning after flowering will keep them compact ; never cut on old wood.

Bushy evergreen shrub, with dark green oval leaves with a wavy margin. The reddish buttons are followed in May-June by bright white flowers with yellow stamens. 

One of the most hardy Cistus, natural hybrid of CISTUS populifolius X CISTUS salvifolius.
