Cistus  Anne Palmer

Cistus

Rockrose

This genus from the Mediterranean region fortunately grows exceptionally well in our mild climate. These evergreens are called Rockroses for their conspicuous single papery blooms, resembling wild rose blossoms. Though these last only a day, they arrive in such profusion, carpeting the ground beneath, that one can count on color for 2 or 3 months.

Fast growing and appreciative of well drained sites, they tolerate drought, poor soil, ocean winds, salt spray and even desert heat. Cistus vary from low spreaders to tall, imposing bushes, and are terrific for informal hedging and screens.

Silvery pink, crepe paper-like petals float over the ripple-edged gray-green foliage of this tasteful low growing evergreen shrub. Equally at home in tough coastal or inland environments, ‘Anne Palmer’ makes a memorable combination with Salvia ‘Waverly’ and Lepechinia hastata.

Blooms May–September.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.
