x Halimiocistus wintonensis ‘Merrist Wood Cream’ full sun  new plant  drought tolerant

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.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
