Description

Cistus x purpureus 'Alan Fradd' is a white-flowering cultivar of the very popular Cistus x purpureus, itself a hybrid cross between Cistus ladanifer and Cistus creticus. It has large, over-lapping pure white flowers with each petal having a dark maroon blotch and with each blotch abruptly turning lemon yellow near the inner centre. Yellow filaments holding orange anthers surround a prominent white stigma. It is an outstanding cultivar, producing flower after flower throughout the late spring and summer. It is extremely drought-resistant and is perfect for a hot, sunny or dry spot.
