Description

This reminds me of my dad whenever I walk past its huge clumps in the gravel of the Rose Garden terrace. We used to find the wild rockrose on our botanising trips to the South Downs and The Burren, in Ireland. I love this early-flowering, fiery, glowing ember coloured form.

Care Tips

A matt-forming, vigorous, spreading, evergreen shrub. Good drainage will keep plants healthy. Pruning can be carried out after flowering.
