    Although varying somewhat, of course, rockroses tend to freeze out below 10-15 degrees F., longevity in USDA 7 not likely to be much.

    This photo beautifully illustrates the results of the crumpled folding of the petals in bud (a feature Cistus shares with the poppies). Referring to the common corn poppy, John Ruskin (1819-1900) in his “Proserpina” likened this to the folds produced from casually stuffing a cambric handkerchief into a pocket.

    Definitely zone 8, not 7; hardy down to about -15°C

    Where can I order seeds from, failing that, where can I order plants from?
    I found the cistus nursery on the west coast, but they want a $30 order, & their site is difficult to use.

    Try B&T World Seeds for Cistus (and many other) seeds.
