Halimium Woolly Rock Rose 180MM

Halimium ‘Woolly Rock Rose’ – 180MM

(Not currently available to be ordered)

I am Woolly Rock Rose. My family originated from the Mediterranean

Botanic Name: Halimium lasianthum ssp. formosum

Bushy – Long flowering window

With my distinctive compact grey foliage and abundant bright golden yellow five petaled flowers in spring and summer I am a great way to add colour and contrast to the garden. Each petal features a small brown “eye” adding to the visual effect. Incredibly hardy I cope with frosts and dry conditions. My naturally rounded form suites me well to low maintenance gardens. I work well in rockeries and in border planting.

Height: 0.4m Width: 1m
(Can be kept trimmed to Height: 0.4m Width: 0.4m)
I tolerate dryness and require minimal water once established
