Cistus salvifolius | Prostratus also know as Sageleaf Rockrose is an evergreen low spreading shrub with beautiful white flowers adorned with golden yellow stamens and a yellow spot at the base of the flower - the flowers are approximately 3.5cm in diameter.

The flowers only last for a day but this vigorous shrub will provide you with a succession of flowers right through from late spring right into early to mid summer.  The flowers are borne atop a dense mound of attractive wrinkled grey green foliage which do resemble sage leaves - hence the common name Sageleaf Rockrose. 

This plant is an excellent choice as both a groundcover for sloping areas, rock walls or rough situations. Also a lovely choice for cottage gardens and city gardens for a lovely crisp clean green and white look. 

It is easily grown in well drained soils and appreciates a full sun position. Plants are evergreen and can be grown in both poor soil and will also tolerate coastal conditions.  Once established they are also drought tolerant, but a layer of mulch will help to keep in the moisture. 

Height up between 40-60cm and spreading ultimately up to 1.8-2.4m although can easily be kept in check by trimming.
