Cistus x lenis ‘Graywood Pink’ Rock Rose.
Resilient evergreen shrub with beautiful silver pink flowers, whitish towards the centre. C. ‘Grayswood Pink’ only grows about 30cm tall but is wide spreading to near 2 metres making it ideal to use as a tough drought tolerant ground cover or to spill over a retaining wall or cover a dry bank.
No other flowering shrub will tolerate such tough dry conditions yet
continue to produce blossom for so long and with such impact. Cistus
requires a warm dry location; it despises wet heavy
soils – but will flourish on poor well drained soils, especially chalky
soils. Prune dead wood in spring – avoid heavy pruning – preferring to
trim to shape. Ideal planted alone or in drifts on hot sunny bank. Very drought tolerant, frost hardy. Suitable for exposed coastal sites.
