Helianthemum (Sun Rose)
at Digging Dog

Including Helianthemum varieties Belgravia Rose, Dazzler, Henfield Brilliant, Wisley Primrose, and St. Mary's


Sun Rose

Evergreen subshrubs and members of the Cistus family, Sun Roses come from the Mediterranean. Tolerant of drought and salt spray, they exhibit the general hardiness that makes them welcome in a rock garden. Let them cascade over a wall or some other sunny, well drained location.

Tufted with yellow stamens, their fleeting, silky, roselike blossoms provide a luminous and continuous display against small-sized matte foliage. Capable of quick infill, combine the Sun Roses with traditional companions like Lavenders, Euphorbias and Origanums.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Cercidiphyllum japonicum for it's cozy array of fall colors, and it's divinely scented leaves. Perhaps Japan’s largest shade tree, normally multi- trunked Katsura manifests a gracious symmetry; trained to a single trunk it provides a narrower, almost columnar shape. Its dappled shade is a cordial host for Corylopsis. Grows moderately to rapidly.
