Cistus skanbergii also known as Dwarf Pink Rockrose is a bushy evergreen shrub that is compact and when in flower has masses of clear pretty pale pink saucer shaped flowers that are about cm in diameter that have bright golden yellow stamens at their centre.  

This variety is smaller that out other Rockroses but the beautiful flowers are so profuse that there literally cover the shrub from late spring and into mid summer.  
The flowers sit atop the compact mound of soft grey-green foliage and this lovely variety is a wonderful choice for sunny shrub borders and pots.

Easily grown, this plant will perform to its best in a well drained position in full sun and also and makes a great choice for gardens that get no watering - great for coastal gardens and those will poor soils. Thrives in hot dry locations. Loved by bees and butterflies.

 Also a wonderful choice for banks, slopes as well as cottage gardens, city gardens as well as gravel and rock gardens - a great all round little shrub that is also virtually pest and disease free.  After flowering,, cut it back in late summer to encourage re-blooming in autumn.

Height approximately 50cm x spreading to about 1m or more.
