Description
Bright, primrose yellow blooms with golden egg-yolk centres stand out against the silvery-green foliage of this Rock Rose. Flowering from May to July, this hardy shrub will produce a further flush in late summer if pruned after flowering. Helianthemum 'Ben Fhada' is tough and drought resistant, tolerating poor soils and hot, dry conditions. Helianthemums make a colourful addition to rockeries, gravel gardens, borders and wildlife areas, where they will attract attention from pollinating insects. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Transplant rock roses into moderately fertile, neutral or alkaline soil, in full sun. Helianthemum dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting. Once established, rock roses can easily tolerate dry sandy soils.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, rock roses are relatively drought tolerant and require minimal maintenance. After flowering, prune helianthemum stems back to within 3cm (1") of the previous year’s growth.
