Product Information

Perfect for filling gaps in beds and borders with masses of beautiful blousy flowers, these vigorous 'rock roses' are hardy, drought tolerant and ever so easy to grow. With just a little pruning after flowering in late spring/summer, they'll reward you with another flush of flowers in late summer.

In an assortment of varieties and colours, the flowers really stand out against the evergreen shrubby silver-green foliage and will bring the bees, butterflies and other beneficial wildlife to your garden - great for aiding pollination of other plants in your garden!

Ideal as a groundcover plant or for growing in sometimes problematic areas like rockeris, gravel areas or hot and dry borders, this helianthemum collection makes light work of hard areas.

Supplied as 6 mixed colour Jumbo Plug Plants, ready for potting up and growing on before planting out.

Top Tips

The abundantly produced flowers last for just a day, but are constantly replaced over a long period. Pinch faded blooms off will encourage continuous flowering.

Care Information

  • Pot up your rock rose plugs on receipt and and grow them on until large enough to plant outdoors.
  • Harden off over 7 to 10 days before planting into their final positions.
  • Rock roses grow best in moderately fertile soil in full sun.
  • Helianthemums dislike wet ground, particularly during winter, so improve heavy soil by adding coarse grit or sharp sand before planting.
  • Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established.
  • Drought tolerant when established, rock roses require little maintenance.
  • After flowering, prune back to within 3cm (1in) of the previous year's growth.
