Although Cistus x argenteus 'Paper Moon' is reported to be the all-white form of this cross, our plant occasionally produces flowers with pink stripes. Flowers are quite large and showy with central golden yellow stamens. The narrow gray green leaves are lightly hairy. The measurements for our plant are based on the first year of growth.
