      Many that consider themselves familiar with the Rockrose let a little gasp escape when seeing this in bloom for the first time. Despite the species being the most famed, and possibly the most drought loving given its distribution through much of the Mediterranean and northern Africa, it seems little grown in this country.

      Huge, creped, pure white, five petalled, saucer shaped flowers, centred with a showy golden boss of stamens (looking like poached eggs), are borne abundantly from plump buds over glossy, dark green, lanceolate foliage, held sparsely enough so as not to hide the richly caramel stems, sticky to the touch and pleasingly aromatic (see Labdanum). Becoming a sizable shrub and ground hugging with time as the branches gradually bow under the weight of successive upright new growth.

      This select form lacks the prominent wine stain spots on each petal that is characteristic of the species.

      Easily grown in any well drained, preferably unirrigated, sunny soil. The more exposure the better with any shade impacting performance and density, though even poorly grown it will still impress.

      I find this is much more palatable, than other species, to gardeners to which the beauty of the garrigue does not appeal.

      A small, compact, evergreen shrub. Dark green, hairy, tightly ribbed alternate leaves are held on slender, woody stems. Throughout the warmer months heads of mauve tinged, white flowers, strongly scented with the aroma of vanilla ice cream.
      Prune lightly after each flush of flowers.
      Sensitive to frost.
