Cistus x purpureus is a hybrid of two Mediterranean species, Cistus ladanifer x Cistus creticus, originally hybridized for fragrant oil production. Despite its Mediterranean heritage, Cistus x purpureus fares quite well in our wet, humid summers as long as the soil drainage is excellent. Cistus x purpureus matures as a 3' tall x 5' wide evergreen shrub, clothed in gummy-feeling, narrow, dark green foliage. The highlight season is late spring, when the clump is topped by stunning 3.5", pinky-purple, papery flowers. Each flower is highlighted by a dark maroon blotch at the base of each petal. This is one of the most asked-about plants at our spring open house.
