Cistus pulverulentus 'Sunset' Magenta Rockrose
The incredibly vibrant magenta color of Sunset Rockrose is an eye-catching standout in any garden or landscape. Its full growth habit and low height make it an excellent selection for ground cover, beds, borders, slopes, rock gardens, urban and coastal gardens. This exceptional evergreen shrub is a winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
Cistus pulverulentus generally blooms in late spring through summer, and grows to about 2' tall x 3' wide. It is drought and salt tolerant once established, but you will want to plant it well-draining soil. This cistus is deer resistant and hardy to 10°F when protected from wind chill.
