Q.Growing Rockrose

Zone 15557 | Anonymous added on February 7, 2019 | Answered

I would like to grow Rockrose to use with other herbs for a medicinal tea. However, I live in the southern part of Pennsylvania (Somerset County) and would like to grow this as a potted plant. Would I be able to grow it as a potted plant, and do I live in the right growing zone for this plant?  Also, what parts of the plant are used; could I use the petals and leaves for a tea?

Unfortunately, Somerset County is too cold for rockrose. I think it would be difficult to grow in a pot as even compact forms grow 5 ft. tall. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rockrose/how-to-grow-rockrose-shrubs.htm
