Purple Rock Rose
Cistus x purpureus
A tidy, compact, sun and heat-loving shrub with showy rose-purple blooms with maroon spots. Tolerates drought, poor soil, even some neglect! Terrific as a rock garden accent, for mass plantings, or for use as an informal divider. Evergreen.
Water NeedsOnce established, water occasionally; more in extreme heat or containers.
