Rocky Knoll Farm
Cistus ladanifer Blanche White Rockrose
This larger growing cistus is an excellent choice for attracting butterflies and bees throughout the late spring and summer bloom season. The bright blossoms have petals with a naturally wrinkled look (almost like crepe paper) that provides a unique character to gardens and landscapes. Butterflies and bees love this great evergreen shrub.
Blanche White Rockrose is versatile and easy to grow in various soil types. It is drought and salt tolerant once established, and deer, rabbit, snail and slug resistant. It likes plenty of sun and can reach over 5' tall x 5' wide. This shrub is hardy to 10°F when protected from windchill.
