Another favorite cistus. These guys are just so tough and take so very little water and the scent!...
This is so lovely, gypsy! I have several cistus in my yard, and they are real troopers.
Patty, there are some cistus that I don't have...I sure don't know why, 'cause I need them all....lol..
I just bought three of these!!! I love the look; the only other cistus I have right now is a Cistus ladanifer, which has been a fav.
Have you met Mickie? Gorgeous in bloom and out.
Here is a link that might be useful: Cistus Mickie
When I first acquired c. skanbergii, it was mis-labeled as c. 'Sunset' and the info told me it would grow to 2-3 ft. Info for c. skanbergii still says growth to 2-3', but mine grow to about 5' x 5". I love all of the cistus...don't stop with just one....lol..spent today taking cuttings of c. 'Frank Birch' which is supposed to grow to about 8' tall. If I'm to go by what was said about c. skanbergii, I expect Frank to grow taller. Cistus are hard to beat for their drought tolerance, toughness, beauty and scent....
onederw -- WHYYYY did you show me 'Mickie'??? Love it, love it!
I layered a bunch of drooping branches on my ladanifer today in hopes they will root, I would really like a few more of those too. I think I did have two, originally, but one kicked the bucket :-(
I feel like a fickle GWer here, I pop on the gardening chat in spring, when yardwork commences, and then again in late fall/early winter!
