Cistus salvifolius 'Gold Star' was collected by Robert Page in Portugal. We assume the name refers to the yellow stain in the center of the white flowers. Sprawling in nature, this makes a fine ground cover shrub for a sunny hillside. The light green leaves are textured and scalloped along their margins and complement the burgundy stems.

May to June.  3 ft. x 3 ft.

White flowers

Sun     Zones (7), 8, 9, 10
