Halimium calycinum (syn.H.libanotis ), (Rock rose, Sun rose) is a charming small evergreen shrub with slender leaves, covered in June with bright yellow saucer-shaped flowers. Forms a low mound, ideal for a rock garden, sunny bank or the front of a shrub border, with lavenders and Cistus. Good for coastal gardens. Height and spread 20cm by 50cm.

Thrives in poor, well drained soil, including chalky soils, in full sun, sheltered from cold winds. Avoid rich soils. Do not feed. Can be trimmed over lightly after flowering to maintain compactness, but avoid cutting into old wood.
