Fire Dragon Sun Rose

Helianthemum 'Fire Dragon'

A low-growing, evergreen perennial, Fire Dragon Sun Rose is perfect for the rock garden or low border. Translucent flowers emerge in spring, covering the plant in a wash of orange and pink.

I purchased 3 of these somewhat on a whim after deciding I needed to add splashes of warm color amongst the predominantly cool purple and pink tones I’ve built up in the garden. As of this June 1 writing, it’s too late to enjoy the flush of blooms this plant promises, but I’m looking forward to seeing the display emerge next spring. They should be a wonderful complement to the various sedums and parahebe planted on the low, south-facing rockery next to our driveway.
