Rock Rose, Tauric (Cistus incanus tauricus), packet of 20 seeds
Family: Rock-rose (Cistaceae)
Hardy to Zones 7 to 11
Bushy evergreen perennial, native to the Mediterranean basin, flowers showy, rose-purple, to 40 inches tall. The flowers dot the bush in a most comely manner, spacing themselves carefully, as if one flower does not wish to touch the next, but then they drop their petals and a new conformation of different flowers occurs the next morning. The show goes on and on through the summer. Traditionally (TWM): dried aerial parts of the plant used in therapies against viral infections and Lyme disease. The herb demonstrates an ability to break down biofilms. Plant prefers dry, sandy or rocky soils in the full sun. Press seeds into surface of potting soil and keep moist and cool until germination, which takes 14 days. Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart.
