The relatively large flowers of Cistus ladanifer are bright against its dark green lance-shaped leaves. The flowers have glowing yellow centers and a crimson blotch at the base of each petal. Touch the leaves and you will feel that they are cool and sticky. Their perfumed aroma clings to your fingers. This upright shrub is a perfect evergreen structural plant for the low-water sunny border.
