Planting Guides

Helianthemum (Rock Rose or Sunrose) are a showy genus of evergreen perennials native to the Old World (Europe and western Asia).

Preferred growing conditions:

  • Plant in infertile (lean), fast-draining soils. They particularly like alkaline limestone soils. Not suitable for clay soils. 
  • Enjoys full sun to partial shade exposure.
  • Water transplants regularly for the first growing season and provide drier conditions once established.
  • Helianthemum are profuse bloomers that don't require deadheading.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half mix of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost applied as a top dressing around the plant.

Special Comments:

  • Helianthemum do best with afternoon shade in the western US to protect the evergreen foliage from being scorched by bright winter sun.
  • In winter, cover with evergreen boughs to provide shade and protection from drying winter winds.
  • Shear lightly after flowering is finished to encourage new growth and maintain a tidy habit.

Love Helianthemum 'Mesa Wine'

By 

from Stockton, CA

Comments about High Country Gardens Helianthemum Mesa Wine:

Best planted in fast draining soil. If heavy soil, plant in raised bed. Although drought tolerant once established, needs full-on sun & moderate water to bloom well.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Helianthemum Mesa Wine:

    I love "Sun Roses" and have grown many in the past. These do look healthy and grew but no flowers. I've never had that happen before. None of my plants flowered, regardless of the variety.

    Q & A

    Suggested Companion Plants:

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
