Halimiocistus x wintonensis

Clever llttle rockrose that deserves a place in a protected, hot, sunny aspect. Sage green dense foliage is a great backdrop to the spectacular 3″ wide cupped flowers. They are white with a zone of maroon at the base around a yellow center. Fun! Blooms daily for 4 weeks in May-June. To 2′ x 2′ quickly in RICH well drained soil in full sun. Light summer water. Great performance in the reflected heat of hellstrips. Beautiful in bloom. Combine with native hardy annuals for a wonderful wildflower spring display. No water necessary. Forms a rounded shape. Best with occasional summer soaks but tolerates drought..  Moderate deer resistance. Very good performance at the Oregon coast.
