Purple Rock Rose
Cistus x purpureus
A lovely shrub with large purple flowers, blooms through the summer. Groovy gardens can feature them, while more sedate gardens might want to use them as a supplement only.
As you can tell, I’m working on my garden-writing skills. Here I’ve made up entire new categories of gardens: the “Groovy Garden” and the “Sedate Garden”. Interestingly, this plant will work well in both! It’s a miracle of garden writing style!
Sometimes I crack myself up.
