Description: Common Rock-rose is widespread across England, southern and eastern Scotland and most of Wales, although it is largely absent from Ireland. It inhabits grassland and broken, rocky ground, favouring chalk and limestone areas. It often grows in dense clusters and produces bright yellow flowers, making it a favoured nectar source for many species of Bee. It is also the foodplant of several butterfly species, including the Brown Argus, Green Hairstreak and the rare Silver-studded Blue butterfly.
Flowering time: May to September
Colour: Bright Yellow
Management: Rock-roses like full sunlight and dry soils. Major clumps of plants should be divided every three years.
