Fragrant Cistus for the Tropics?

anyaperfumer(10b)December 27, 2013

I'm looking for fragrant cistus plants that will do well in Miami, zone 10b. It should have a sticky resin on the leaves and stems, with an earthy, warm scent.

Thanks in advance,

Calamondin and Kumquat are fairly low maintenance and do well, bloom alot and smell great. Not sure what u mean about resin?

Cistus are mediterranean climate plants, not tropical. Although, neither is Miami, you'd have to be in Cuba for that. But the main issue with mediterranean plants is that they prefer a dry summer and wet winter. In a climate with a wetter summer you'd have to protect them from too much water and humidity, much like many herbs. A climate such as in California with dry summers would be the ideal.
