I'm a photographer and recently returned from a trip to a public garden
where I snapped this flower: http://tinyurl.com/3uq9vd (Attachment
system doesn't seem to work?)
I'm having trouble finding out what it is, but am thinking it's perhaps
a primrose? Sorry that the leaves aren't visible.
Latin names preferable but anything to help is appreciated :)
Definitely not a primrose, and definitely not a Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus
syriacus). The other suggestion that it is a Cistus is in the right
area; it's at least in that family.
There's maybe too much yellow in the colour for Cistus (they're white to
pink or purple), but otherwise it looks about right. So I googled for
images of the hybrids x Halimiocistus. It looks like it is x
Halimiocistus wintonensis, and likely the cultivar 'Merrist Wood Cream'.
