Buy Cistus × pulverulentus 'Sunset' rock rose: Attractive ground cover with magenta flowers

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

    Originating from dry, rocky parts of the Mediterranean, this rock rose is both drought-tolerant and low maintenance. Plant it in a sunny spot with freely draining soil, and it will reward you with masses of magenta flowers, each with a prominent yellow eye, in midsummer. Compact, yet with a spreading habit, it makes an attractive, evergreen edging plant for the front of a sheltered border. It will also do well in a pot on a sunny patio.

  • Garden care: After flowering, pinch back young plants to encourage bushier growth. Lightly trim or cut back any stems that spoil the symmetry of the plant.

Why has my cistus x pulverulentus sunset got yellow leaves,

nice one.

I'd be happy to give some advice if you are able to supply a few photos and your order no. to to give more context. It could be that the leaves are naturally dying back, though yellowing usually indicates some kind of nutrient deficiency and/or environmental stress.
