Description
These tough little rock roses are hardy, drought tolerant and trouble-free, producing glorious colour from late spring to midsummer. If pruned after flowering, they'll even reward you with a second flush of blooms in late summer! The nectar-rich flowers, set against a backdrop of silvery, semi-evergreen foliage, are loved by bees and other insects. This helianthemum collection makes excellent groundcover or a versatile addition to rockeries or hot, dry borders. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12"). Collection comprises the following varieties:
  • Helianthemum Ben Mohr - Orange, saucer-shaped flowers.
  • Helianthemum Pink Angel - An abundance of delicate double, pink flowers.
  • Helianthemum The Bride - A pretty, white rock rose with an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
  • Helianthemum Ben Fhada - Bright, primrose yellow blooms with golden egg-yolk centres.
  • Helianthemum Rose of Leeswood - Dark-green foliage with double pink-purple flowers

How to Grow
Pot up helianthemum plants and grow them on until large enough to plant outdoors. When they are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting into their final positions. 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.
