Buy Cistus × hybridus rock rose ( syn. Cistus corbariensis ): A profusion of white summer flowers

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection)

    Mounds of wavy-margined, evergreen leaves are accompanied by yellow-centred, papery white flowers, which emerge from crimson buds in June to July. This wonderful, bushy rock rose is one of the hardiest compact varieties. It is ideal for a large patio container or a sunny, shrub border, but it does require protection from harsh winds.

  • Garden care: After flowering pinch back young plant to encourage a bushy habit. Lightly trim or cut back any stems that spoil the symmetry of the plant.

Lovely bushy plant, evergreen. Supplied 40cm high. Facing west in large trough.




I'd try this Cistus again.


We ordered the plant as a replacement of our previous cistus x hybridus, planted in a big Victorian terracotta pot, a wonderful healthy specimen with a remarkably long flowering season till late autumn which we greatly enjoyed for many years. Unfortunately, we were unlucky with the new plant which due to its strangely crumpled leaves made us wonder from the beginning whether it actually was a cistus x hybridus. We handled it in the same way as our previous Cistus, but it did not flower at all, looked lifeless and sad and we finally decided to part with it. My 5 star rating therefore refers to the species in general, not to this specimen.




Very pretty and long flowering


used on the edge of a bed - doesn't flop over onto the lawn. Not so happy in a pot.
