Cistus x purpureus


Cistus x purpureus (Cistus x purpureus)

My shrubs are getting old now - there was some dead wood on them this year, but they're still flowering.

Just out of interest what do you call old Spritz?

They were here (and mature) when we bought the house coming up 6 years ago - so they could be anything, really - I wish I knew the answer, Denise.

My neighbours is the same and she asked me to cut out the deadwood but only tidied it up otherwise would look awful and patchy. Should I take cuttings to grow on to replace it eventually?

I've never tried, Pip, but it's worth a go...One of mine does look awful - it's on its way out, I'm sure. :-(((

you must try soft wood cuttings spritz. My brother has quite good success this way. he finds they turn their roots up when they are about 10-12 yrs old.
