Buy Helianthemum 'Wisley Primrose' rock rose: Low-growing with lemon-coloured flowers

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Forming a spreading mound of grey-green leaves, this mainly-evergreen shrub looks wonderful planted in an alpine bed, en masse on a slope, or in a pot on the terrace. The lemon coloured flowers appear over a long period from late spring. Once established it becomes drought tolerant and it thrives in hot, sunny spots where little else will grow. It also copes well with salt laden wind so is a good choice for coastal gardens.

  • Garden Care: Prune in mid to late summer after flowering, cutting back any straggly stems.

August pruning of trees, shrubs and climbers

Late summer is the best time to prune many midsummer-flowering shrubs to keep them vigorous and flowering well. It is also the ideal time to prune several trees that are prone to bleeding if pruned at other times, and it’s not too late to complete the pru
