I saw these flowers in shrubs at a restaurant on 5.17.2016.

The flowers are flat, no double layers. Petals look fragile.
The petals look like crepe [crinkled] paper.

Any idea?

I believe those are Cistus. I don't know which one though.

Edited to add, family Cistaceae, and welcome to NGA!

Cistus × purpureus

I had one for several years but they don't live forever.

Thank you for the welcoming greeting, I like this website.

Thank you so much for the information.
This is the exact flower, in Oregon in the USA.
