Cistus "Bennet's White" is gorgeous and sounds like a wonder plant. How would it handle half-day sun, from about noon until 6:00 PM? Thank you!

Cistus prefers growing in all day sunshine, but full afternoon sunshine should be just fine. Try to keep this plant on the dry side for best bloom. Providing reflected heat (from a building, wall, or fence) will enhance its performance.
