Perhaps the name Cistus 'Ruby Cluster' refers to the clusters of ruddy buds at the top of the flowering stems. Or does it refer to the ruby stain near the base of each petal of the small cupped flowers? The flowers' whiteness is accented by their central bosses of golden stamens. The foliage is mid-sized and apple green on reddish, lightly hairy stems. This is a rewarding, evergreen shrub for a dry border.

June through July.  12 in. x 24 in.

White/Red Stain flowers
