(C. albidus x C. laurifolius) Because this gray foliaged shrub is upright and nicely rounded, Cistus x bornetianus (x) 'Jester' (Eric Sammons) is ideal for use as a structural element in a dry border. To continue the pink theme of its flowers in late summer, try a Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink' nearby.

May and June.  3 ft. x 3 ft.
