|Native to the Mediterranean region, these evergreen, spring- and summer-blooming shrubs are perfect for sunny, dry or hot situations and seashore plantings. Leaves vary in size and shape, but blooms are single and rose-like. Fast-growing and fire-resistant, they tolerate drought and poor soils. They are also cold-hardy to 10º to 20º F. Need little attention except for cutting back occasionally. Excellent drainage is essential to prevent root rot. Plant in masses in rock gardens or as a bank cover, as they help control erosion.
Plant this compact and spreading shrub in infertile soil for a long life. Produces short-lived cerise or purplish-pink flowers.
