CISTUS ALBIDUS 'PINK SILK'
An exceptional pink hybrid seedling here years ago, possibly with some of the blood of the rare Cistus palhinhae we collected in Portugal. Huge, frilly, paler-eyed pink flowers cover this dwarf shrub in spring and early summer. Will thrive in a baking hot position.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination usually occurs within 4 to 6 weeks although some seeds may take much longer.
