Sun Rose

Cistus dansereaui 'Alan Fradd'

This Sun Rose is a wonderful dwarf, spreading evergreen shrub with attractive foliage.

The striking white saucer shaped flowers have a distinctive crimson blotch that seem to be continuously in flower. The sun rose is a delight in the forefront of a mixed border, where the effect will be very eye catching.

The Alan Fradd cistus is a good plant for dry gardens as it is drough tolerant. It also makes a great ground cover plant as it has a low growing habit.
