Halimiocistus x wintonensis ‘Merrist Wood Cream’

For flowers alone this is the most spectacular Rockrose. A cross between Halimium  and Cistus produced this remarkable low spreading evergreen shrub to 2′ tall and 3′ wide. In April to June 2″ cream colored single flowers, the base of each petal is a maroon blotch Flowers appear daily for weeks. Attractive felted sage green/gray foliage is handsome even out of bloom.  Full sun and well drained ENRICHED soil- these hybrids prefer richer conditions.  Little or no water for established plants. Tip prune after flowering to shape. Protected location. Excellent performance in Hell strips. Amazing flowers. Prune very lightly if needed after flowering.
