General information to Cistus:
Cistus are subshrubs with leaves that in the summer’s sun are fragrant with a spicy- dry aroma typical for mediterranean areas. There, Cistus are a characteristic for maquis (shrubland). They prefer stony and well draining substrate as well as a sunny, even hot situation. During spring months they continuously produce new buds of one-day flowers. Cistus should be watered continuously but with little dose. The roots must not dry out and on the other hand may not be wet for too long. Cistus are hardy down to app. -12 °C (temperature zone 8). In regions with mild winter Cistus can be planted in the garden. In winter, their crown should then be protected from the winter sun by a cover of fleece or spruce branches. A thick cover of fallen leaves should protect the roots.
