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’.

Blooms May–June.

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

“We ordered a half-dozen Bergenia 'Bressingham White'.... Not only did they arrive in tip-top shape, but they also are thriving this spring.”
