With little knowledge, I'm slowly turning an acre field into a garden! This is my first gardening attempt, so there's such a lot to learn! 🐝🦋🌻

Thank you! This has done so well here and I'm starting to wonder whether having a hedge of it would be good. I've taken several cuttings and they all take. With it being evergreen it's nice even without it's carpet of flowers @franshinegee @columbiariver @gjones

It sure looks dense enough for a hedge. And how gorgeous it would be at bloom time!

It is quite dense @columbiariver but stunning when it's in flower. Sadly it doesn't last long! But it is a beautiful lush evergreen!

@Urshy63 is this a cistus salviflorus then? Thank you!

My mum bought me this evergreen cistus, brilliant value for money, lovely spring lushness and hundreds of flowerheads!

Today's challenge, count the buds! There's masses on this bush! Can't wait for the show. Just a pity they only last a few days!

Help me identify this plant please. It has loads of white flowers late spring with a bit of yellow on them. An evergreen bush with a lovely redish tinge!

It looks like cistus? Does it have large papery looking flowers @SylviaDavies

4w
comment
SylviaDavies

@sanklune it's in a border I made at the side of a field. It's the third season this year! I'm thinking it would actually do a good hedge especially as it is evergreen!

comment
SylviaDavies

@joanboston yes, they don't last long unfortunately but an abundance of them! It's quite different ti my other cistus though! Very eye-catching even without the flowers and so easy to propagate! 😃 😃 😃

I have a cistus looks just like this. Yours is a beauty @SylviaDavies but I don't think they are long lived so keep taking the cuttings!
