Compact mounding or spreading shrub with dark green leaves and white flowers in summer.

Prefers very well drained, sandy, fairly poor soils and full sun. Less harsh conditions and more fertility make the plant less hardy and not as tough.

From semi-ripe cuttings taken in late summer.

Useful low growing shrub for hot dry situations such as large sunny rock gardens or raised beds.

Naturally occuring hybrid of Cistus salvifolius x Halimium umbellatum, found in Southern France.
