Cistus Alan Fradd or Rock Rose Alan Fradd
Sun Roses or Rock Roses, are small flowering shrubs native to the Mediterranean that prefer full sun and rocky, dry environments. The variety Cistus Alan Fradd, also known as Rock Rose Alan Fradd has evergreen foliage and thin, papery white flowers with a central deep purple blotch at the base of each petal. These purple spots also give the cultivar its full botanical name: Cistus Purpureus Alan Fradd. In the centre of the blossom, there is a boss of vibrant golden antlers that further adds to its loveliness. While the blossoms are delicate and not very long-lasting (they usually do not last for more than a day), they are produced freely and profusely in June and July.
