Cistus 'Elma' is an upright medium sized shrub with narrow, dark green, leaves and single white flowers. The aromatic leaves are gummy to the touch and give off an indescribable, subtle aroma. We are often amused watching visitors sniffing the borders trying to identify the source of the fragrance.

Late spring to early summer.  5 ft. x 5 ft.

White flowers

Sun     Zones 8, 9, 10
