    A cross between a Cistus and a Halimium, this hybrid offers the best of both its parents. It forms a low, spreading mound of slender, rich green leaves, which in summer is virtually smothered in a mass of yellow-eyed white flowers. A sun-loving evergreen, it looks great in gravel or Mediterranean-style gardens, and will become tolernt of drought once established.

  • Garden care: After flowering, pinch back young plant to encourage a bushy habit. Lightly trim or cut back any stems that spoil the symmetry of the plant. This plant should never be pruned hard.
