Helianthemum - 'Rock Roses'
Helianthemum means 'Sun Flower' but they are usually called 'Rock Roses' and are fantastic plants, especially for dry, sunny sites. They grow as low, spreading bushes, usually about 15 to 30cm (6" to 12") high and will produce brightly coloured flowers for a long period in summer. Many have greyish leaves and all are drought tolerant - ideal for gravel gardens, among or beside paving, sunny bankings etc., or any sunny part of the garden with reasonable soil. We offer one of the widest ranges of varieties available online, though not in large quantities. Read more
9th June - plants will be available again early/mid July.
Rock Roses become very untidy after flowering when grown in small pots, dropping petals and getting quite leggy. We don't like sending out sending out plants in that state, so we prune them hard and when they grow back we'll have nice, tidy plants again. A few varieties remain available and we should have all the other ones in July.
If you cannot decide on which varieties to choose, we offer our selection of 8 different ones - Collections
Like all our plants, our Rock Roses are grown in 9cm, full depth pots. They are hard, well-grown plants and true to name. Many nurseries offer Helianthemum plants - some as plugs or little more than rooted cuttings, others in over-priced large pots. We think our plants offer good quality and value - and they are some of our best selling plants.
