Lovely, yet tough and drought resistant, x Halimiocistus is a cross between the genera Halimium and Cistus. This small-scale evergreen cultivar was raised at Merrist Wood Horticultural College in 1970.

Its low spreading form hosts soft yellow flowers embellished with wine-red spots at the base of each petal and narrow gray-green leaves. ‘Merrist Wood Cream’ is a favorite of ours en masse, as a rockery specimen, or blended with Nepeta, Lavender and Teucrium f. ‘Azureum’.

Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
