x Halimiocistus wintonensis
Evergreen, Shrubs, Flowers
These mound-forming hybrids between Halimium and Cistus salviifolius combine the good qualities of both parents, offering dense foliage, abundant bloom, and high tolerance for sun and heat. They need excellent drainage and cannot live in wet soil; water from lawn sprinklers can kill them. Use in rock gardens, on dry banks, or spilling over a wall. Or plant on the sunny side of the house under the eaves where rains seldom reach.x Halimiocistus wintonensis
