    What do you think are the odds of this succeeding in my rock wall in zone 6b? Or would I need to grow it in the greenhouse?

      Hi Angela,
      These are listed at zone 7 to 11 which puts you on the cold side of things. The rock wall helps. I dunno, I’ve found them to be dependable overwinterers, you can only try.

      Hello K. Giresi,
      Due to customs regulations, we cannot ship plants to Canada. Seeds OK. You might try Richter’s Herbs, they are in Canada.

      Probably, this is the first year we’ve grown these so don’t know that much about them.

      Hi Richo,

      I’m getting this plant because of its medicinal value..I’m excited about what I’m reading about using it as a tea. I’m also dabbling in natural perfumery and have been looking to grow the variety that the prized variety that one can obtain the resin Laudanum from. This material comes from the sticky fragrant leaves of the Rockrose..also called gum rock rose. Does this variety have an aroma ? Can you recommend a source for the Mediterranean variety cistus laudanum ? Thank you & I hope you are well ~ Rachel

      Hi Rachel, This is the only type of Cistus I’ve been able to find. It doesn’t have sticky leaves. I look forward to expanding our offerings on different species/subspecies in the future, and have no recommendations right now. richo
