Cistus or Rockroses is a small genus with only 20 species and a couple of subspecies and varieties described. They are perennial shrubs with silvery shiny foliage and large rose-like flowers in pink or sulphurous. Any well drained rocky soil in full sun is suited.
Sow tiny seeds flat on any well drained sandy and humus rich soil. Do not cover seeds with soil. Keep pots in the first year under frostfree conditions, in winter in full sun and at a minimum of some 5°C. Transplant seedlings in late spring the following year in a protected spot in full sun in any rocky, well drained soil.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7.
