Cistus Purpureus Ground Cover
These small evergreen shrubs thrive in difficult dry areas including chalk and coastal if the site is well drained and in full sun. During the summer months they will produce a succession of attractive saucer shaped rosy crimson flowers that have a distinctive maroon splash. Trim lightly after flowering to maintain compact plants. All grow to approx 90cm and will make excellent ground cover or a low informal hedge. (Trim after flowering).
