Cistus
‘Elma’

 

Larger than life and wonderfully upright! To say that the blooms on this selection of Rockrose are big would be an understatement. They are massive! A bevy of blossoms will adorn this dense, drought tolerant shrub in spring and summer. Dark green, fragrant leaves will add a Mediterranean perfume to the air year-round. Plant in full sun with well drained soils for healthy growth and extended bloom. This beauty is deceptively low maintenance. Light tipping back will keep this selection a tight and tidy 5’ wide and 5’ tall. With a little extra training, this selection can be maintained at a svelte 3’ wide.
