Producing masses of cheerful golden-yellow flowers in late spring and early summer, Helianthemum 'Golden Queen' is a lovely addition to rockeries, coastal gardens and the front of hot, dry borders. The dainty blooms, which are a magnet for pollinators, blanket a neat mound of fine evergreen foliage. This hardy rock rose is easy to grow, drought resistant and low maintenance, thriving in dry, sandy soils. It looks fantastic in combination with other drought-tolerant Mediterranean plants such as lavenders and Cistus. Simply trim back after flowering to retain the compact shape and encourage a second flowering. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Plant rock roses into moderately fertile, neutral or alkaline soil, in full sun. Helianthemum dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting. Once established, rock roses can easily tolerate dry sandy soils.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, rock roses are relatively drought tolerant and require minimal maintenance. After flowering, prune helianthemum stems back to within 3cm (1”) of the previous year’s growth.
