I 've obtained a little shrub this year. I don't know if and how it 'll survive our wet winters. She's pretty and flowers are nicely fragnant. I've deadheaded her and she keeps full of buds. So she only needs a lightly trim. Likes to grow in light slightly acid soil on a sunny spot. Sun Roses have a low alkaline tollerance.
Updated spring 2006: This Cistus has survived splendidly our wet winter with temps down to -15 C occasional.
Update spring 2009: In our (relative) mild winters past years it has stayed perfectly wintergreen. Nearly end of summer 2008 I gave it a hard trim, I've done that in 2005 and it has responded remarkble well by growing into a tidy shrub that carried countless flowers. Winter 2008/2009 we had a harsh winter with temps that went down to -22 C (-7.6 F) for several weeks. I've lost it...maybe because it had 'nt recovered enough from the trimming (I think).
