Cistus creticus

Cistus creticus (Cistus creticus)

This has had to be moved a little as it was being crowded out by an Astrantia. Lovely tissue paper petals.

Thanks Moti....Cistus Paunanum is bright yellow. I love these, I'd forgotten about them until I saw Annellas and thought they would do well in my sunny garden areas...and they are evergreen...brilliant plants! This one is a lovely pale lilac shade.

I've had to move it was being swamped by an aster. It doesn't seem to have minded too much, but is a bit slow to get going again. We had good rain last night which will have helped.

It should be fine Karen, I've had to move them in the past (not an easy job here though!)

yes, it hadn't been in that long, so it was easy peasy. I don't think it really noticed much!
