The Rock-rose family, Cistaceae, contains some 200 species, including many wildflowers that are very similar in appearance and are therefore difficut to identify with certainty.
These thumbnail pictures have links to larger photographs and information about each of the species, their habitat needs and an identification guide.
We have used the scientific names to identify species in this table, but if you prefer to use common names we have also listed all species covered on the First Nature website in alphabetical order of Common Names...
