Rock roses by name, and in many ways, rock roses by nature. Pretty as these little flowers are, with their buttercup shape and bright colours, they are still hard as nails, tolerating drought and dry soil. Typically, they'll flower between May and July, but if you're really lucky, this is sometimes followed by a second round of flowering later in summer.
This plant is attractive to butterflies and bees, so expect to see them flock to your garden where this planted.
Helianthemum thrive in full sun and like their soil to be well drained. Their care needs are minimal, making them perfect for beginners. They also work well in a variety of garden spaces, from flowerbeds to ground covers and pots.
Please note colour of plant may vary.
