Cistus 'Greyswood Pink'


Cistus 'Greyswood Pink'

This is a lovely Cistus. The pale pink tissue-paper flowers amidst the grey-green sage-like leaves...it's so feminine. It's not often you'll see one flowering this late....right beside a japanese anemone. A treat.

I agree with your description Karensusan 63, yours look beautiful.....mine does not look so lush as yours and it does not bloom at this time of the year :-(
but the leaves are still attractive. New addition to my garden last year.

THanks Klahanie! This is recently added to my garden I didn't expect it to flower, and I think it has flowered because it is a young plant and probably didn't flower in June when you would normally expect it to bloom.

I love them Karen. Another old favourite for there long flowering season, mine throw up flowers till late in the year. I have Silver pink which is very similar to this.

Lovely!

(I make mistakes when typing that I would never make when handwriting, especially with homophones. Odd, isn't it?)
