Description

More than ever with lockdown, I, like many of us I’m sure, long for a walk over a scraggy Mediterranean hillside scattered and splotched with cistus. My parents used to grow lots of different cistus varieties in the sunny spots of their garden and I’ve recently added this one here, a perfect tissue paper flower.

Care Tips

Grows best in well-drained soil in a sheltered site in full sun. Light pruning after flowering every couple of years can keep the plant looking fresh and compact.
