Sunrose

Helianthemum ‘Cheviot’
CISTACEAE, The Rockrose family

Yes, sunrose has been the plant of the day before, twice, but it’s too luscious. It’s that time of year again: the walls and rockeries of gardeners-in-the-know drip with the sublime contrast of the Chinese red blooms and the soft sage leaves of ‘Henfield’s Brilliant’.

On my bike route home from work there is a nice terrace with blue grasses, a little olive tree, too many euphorbias and big patches of a peach-flowered, blue-green leaved sunrose called ‘Cheviot’.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
