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.
