A rounded shrub from Southern Europe.

Has ovate, very hairy leaves with wavy margins. Bears large (2 inch), slightly crumpled (like tissue paper screwed up and then laid flat) flowers with 5 petals and bright yellow stamens.

Flowers June-August

Likes a very well drained, gritty, poorish, neutral soil in full sun and appreciates shelter from wind.
