Helianthemum nummularium

Helianthemum ‘Henfield Brilliant’

Helianthemum is a great low growing evergreen shrub.  It only gets about six inches tall and spreads two to three feet.  Flowers can be white, yellow, pink, orange or red.  The biggest flower show occurs in late spring or early summer, but further flowering can be encouraged by shearing off the spent flowers.  Full sun, moderate water and good drainage are essential.
