Rock Rose


This fast growing shrub can handle just about anything. The rock rose can stand up to heat, wind, salt, and drought with very little care or watering once established. They work great as border plants, on hillsides, or in a container. The deep pink color provides a stunning contrast to the dark green leaves.
