Sunset rockrose is low spreading to mounding shrub, 18-24 in. tall and ranging 3-5 ft. across. Colorful flowers are deep rose-magenta with yellow centers cover the plant in spring. Foliage is comprised of pale green leaves that are covered with many small hairs and heavily textured.
This rockrose cultivar is a popular choice for use as a ground cover on banks and in mixed understory plantings within traditional Mediterranean and southwestern garden plantings. It can be planted as individual flowering accent shrubs as well for small group plantings. Seasonal pruning in the fall helps retain good form and foliage character for 4-6 years.
