Product Information

Also known as the rock rose this Mediterranean native of dry, rocky soil enjoys dry and sunny conditions and is perfect for gravel gardens and dry, sheltered areas of the garden.

A plant that comes into its own in early summer, the single, saucer-shaped flowers around 5cm across are produced around the same time as peonies which makes them an ideal plant to bridge the gap between spring bulbs and summer roses. Each crepe-paper flower lasts only a day, but the bushes are smothered in buds, giving a display that lasts for many weeks.

Easy to grow and relatively trouble free, Cistus are quick growing and perfect in pots being relatively smaller, semi-evergreen shrubs. Ideal too for the front of the border where they will happily mingle with other Mediterranean shrubs such as Rosemary, Salvias, Santolina and Lavender. Fully hardy to around -10C, plants benefit from winter protection to avoid frost damage.

Supplied as three plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting into warm soil. 1 each of:

Cistus x pulverulentus 'Sunset' AGM - Award-winning cistus with rose-Pink blooms with yellow centre. 50cm x 100cm.
Cistus x purpureus 'Alan Fradd' - White flowers with a crimson blotch in the centre. 100cm x 100cm

Care Information

Planting Advice for Cistus:

  • Grow in a sheltered spot.
  • Cistus should be planted out in late spring or summer, rather than autumn. If your soil is not very sharp draining, add grit to the planting hole.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Dig a planting hole and sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.


 

Aftercare Advice for Cistus Collection:

  • Keep plants well-watered for their first season until established when they will become quite drought tolerant.
  • Fleece plants in cold winters to prevent frost damage.

 

Pruning Advice for Cistus:

  • Cistus are best pruned lightly after flowering to keep into shape. Pinch back new growth after flowering to achieve this.
  • Do not prune into old wood as plants are unlikely to recover.
