Rocky Knoll Farm
Cistus Crimson Spot Rockrose (ladanifer maculatus)
Striking white blossoms adorned with crimson spots and a bright yellow eye come alive against the rich evergreen foliage of this delightful shrub. It does well in sunny gardens and is drought tolerant once established. It is hardy, low maintenance, and even nicely fragrant so it is an excellent choice for any garden or rocky slope.
Crimson Spot prefers well-draining soil and is hardy to 0°F when protected from wind. It usually starts blooming in late spring and can last through a good portion of summer. Grows to around 4' tall and 4' wide.
