I just bought this and this is the tag, no additional information (close-out sale). I'm having problems finding this in our database, or at any other reliable website. Anyone familiar with this? It's an evergreen, variegated leaf cistus, which I call rock rose, but some folks use that for Helianthemum which I've always called sun rose. Neither reminds me much of a rose. So, confusion upon confusion.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Here's a new entry for it. It wasn't in our database yet, but I'm finding lots of references to it on line.

Thanks, Zuzu. I'll add that to My List and make a note to snap a photo next spring when it looks less tattered than it currently does.

Looks like a very pretty plant. It's one I'd buy if I saw it locally.
