White Rockrose (Cistus corbariensis) has cheery white flowers, usually with yellow centers and sometimes with brown spots near the base of the petals. It grows 4 to 5 feet tall and wide.
Native to the Mediterranean, rockrose plants have soft green foliage that varies in shape depending on the species. Large, fragrant flowers bloom for about a month in late spring and early summer. Each blossom lasts only a day, and may be pink, rose, yellow or white, depending on the species. Use rockrose shrubs in dry areas as a xeriscaping plant or in coastal areas where they tolerate sandy soil, salt spray and strong winds. These 3- to 5-foot shrubs make an attractive, informal hedgerow. Rockrose plants are particularly useful for erosion control on dry banks.
