Description

Rock Roses are low and spreading evergreen shrubs which thrive in challenging dry situations. They form neat humps of small, greyish-green, linear foliage which will spill over rockeries or border edges providing cover and interest throughout the year. In late spring to early summer, Helianthemum 'Golden Queen' is smothered in flat, 5-petalled flowers of a rich golden yellow with an orange centre. If pruned and shaped after flowering, it will keep its lovely hummocky shape and you may even be rewarded with a second flush of flowers later in the summer. 

The nectar-rich flowers are a magnet for pollinating insects. Trouble free and easy to grow, this variety is perfect for planting at the front of hot, dry borders and rockeries, and makes a useful addition to coastal gardens. It combines beautifully with other Mediterranean plants such as Cistus and Lavender. 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
Plant 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.
