Comment: Nice and full!

Rock Rose is a delightful shrubby perennial that can handle a variety of soil and sun conditions. Its blooms are a lovely bright pink color, and they open each morning and close each evening. Rock Rose is adaptable and will do well in full sun to part sun, although it appreciates an occasional drink of water if in full sun, especially in the summer.

Rock Rose has a long flowering period, and it is a workhorse in the garden. It benefits from a haircut a couple of times a year to prevent legginess and woodiness and to keep it more compact. It pairs perfectly with Russian sage.
