Caring for Labdanum

  • An accurate soil test will tell you where your pH currently stands.
  • Acidic (sour) soil is counteracted by applying finely ground limestone, and alkaline (sweet) soil is treated with ground sulfur.
  • If you order roses from a mail-order company, order early, in January or February (March at the latest).
  • They are usually shipped in the spring as bare roots when plants are fully dormant, well before they have leafed out.

Typical uses of Labdanum

Special features: Phylogenetic and divergence dating methods found that C. ladanifer diverged during the Pleistocene, long after the opening of the Strait of Gibraltar around 5 mya, which supports a hypothesis of dispersal for this species. Although its seeds fall close to the maternal plant, C. ladanifer may have successfully dispersed due to its preference for disturbed habitats.
