  2. CISTUS CRETICUS

    A compact and bushy, evergreen shrub, flowering from February until June, with colours that can vary from rose pink to purple. It is native to southern Europe and the area around the eastern Mediterranean, but is naturalized in other areas of the world, such as California. It prefers a well-drained soil and does best in full sun. All cistus do best if pruned after flowering which will retain shape and provide healthy young growth for next years flowers.
