Cistus incanus 'Lasca Select' (Ken Montgomery) is a California hybrid that gets its name from the site where it was developed, Los Angeles State and County Arboretum (LASCA). It forms a vigorous shrub with large rounded green leaves that are both woolly and papery to the touch and have crimped margins. Cistus incanus is now considered C. creticus. We have left the botanical, however, as it was when we received the plant.

Early summer.  4 ft. x 6 ft.

Pink flowers
