Halimium Overview

A genus of 13 species of compact evergreen or semi-evergreen subshrubs in the Cistaceae family native to Europe, North Africa, Central Asia with a centre of diversity in the Mediterranean basin. They have simple oval leaves and 5-petalled salver-shaped flowers in yellow or white (in the native species) sometimes with a basal spot in dark brown acting as an insect guide. They are popular rock garden plants, commonly known as rock roses, and closely related to Cistus. There are many cultivars and hybrids available with a range of flower colours.
