Cistus × hybridus corbariensis is a low-growing, dense, bushy, mound-forming, evergreen shrub with ovate, wavy-edged, wrinkled, dark green leaves, light green beneath, and lovely, pure white flowers with yellow centres emerging from red buds in summer. Cistus × hybridus corbariensis grows best in poor, sandy, well-drained soils, but can adapt to a wide range of soil types. It is tolerant of lime, but may suffer from chlorosis on very chalky soils. It thrives in full sun to light shade. Once established, tolerant of drought and coastal conditions. It’s a Mediterranean climate plant and the hardiest of all rock roses. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. This Hybrid Rock Rose is a cross between C. salviifolius and C. populifolius. It’s a lovely shrub, perfect for flower beds, mixed and shrub borders, as well as banks and slopes. Great as a groundcover, beautiful in rock and gravel gardens, excellent for any informal, cottage, urban, and coastal garden.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
