Cistus - or Rock Rose - originate from dry, rocky parts of the Mediterranean and Canary Islands, and so are drought-tolerant and low maintenance. They produce masses of flowers in midsummer, but each lasts only one day. 'Silver Pink' is particularly free-flowering, and forms a neat mound, with a profusion of delicate, papery, silvery-pink flowers, fading to almost white in the centre, during June and July. Try it at the front of a sunny, well-drained border or in a large patio container. The shrub is extremely rewarding as it produces thousands of flowers bringing a vivid splash of colour to your garden. This shrub is very hardy and easy to care for.
Supplied in 1 litre pots.
