Plant Information

Cistus Decumbens, commonly known as Rock Rose is a small spreading evergreen. Saucer shaped white flowers with crimson blotches with 5 petals. Each flower lasts just a day but many new flowers open every day through Summer.

Cistus Decumbens makes an excellent shrub for a sunny mixed border. Requires little maintenance but can be trimmed lightly each year to retain shape - do not cut hard as this may damage or kill the plant. Best in a well drained soil in full sun to light shade
