Cistus x argenteus 'Stripey' is a sport from Cistus x argenteus 'Peggy Sammons' has interesting large white flowers with streaks and stripes in varying shades of pink. No two flowers look exactly alike. During the difficult December of 2008, we lost several cistus to the exceptional cold and the weight of heavy snow. However, all of the crosses between C. laurifolius and C. x canescens that we grow in the garden came out of the winter with their gray, wooly foliage looking much as it had before it went in.

Late spring to early summer.  3 ft. x 3 ft.

White/Pink flowers
