Friday Flower: Purple Rockrose
This week's flower is the orchid rockrose, Cistus purpureus. The rockrose is a hearty shrub that survived the freezing temperatures we had that we had in December and January, and had no problem with the 100+ days of July and August. It has been blooming heartily since the end of March. Even after it's done flowering, it's a handsome shrub, with sage-like leaves.
