Planting cistus

Cistus is a typical prairie shrub, very common in Mediterranean areas, and it will adapt well to similar mild, dry climates.

To correctly plant cistus, best plant in spring or fall in a spot that is protected from strong winds.

  • Cistus does require soil that is well drained where water won’t stagnate. Set up drainage if necessary with a 16-inch (40 cm) layer of gravel along the bottom of the hole.
  • Cistus easily copes with poor soil even when rocky and full of stones.
  • Favor an emplacement that is with full sun exposure to promote flower-bearing.
  • Follow our advice on planting shrubs.
