Perfect for pollinators

Common Rockrose -helianthemum nummularium– normally grows best on poor well-drained soils, amongst thin short grasses. It is well suited to chalk and limestone soils, and requires a site where there is full sunlight. As it’s name suggests, Common Rockrose is ideal for rock gardens and also perfect for a gravel bed, path or drive, where plants will attract a wide range of insects such as Bees, and Butterflies. In the wild Common Rockrose plays host to the beautiful Green Hairstreak as a breeding butterfly which will lay its eggs on the plant. Common Rockrose is a very low growing species with a brilliant yellow flower that appears from May to September. Common Rockrose looks best growing with other chalk and limestone plants such as Meadow Saxifrage, Wild Marjoram, Wild Basil and Clustered Bellflower.

How to grow Common Rockrose Seeds
Common Rockrose seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Common Rockrose seeds can take a while to germinate. The seedlings, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out in the autumn.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set
and fruit development. Find out more at: rhs.org.uk/plants
