The board techies told me that if you copy the etxt into Word or Notepad and then into the message the hypertext stuff disappears. Bit of a fag. Instead I am going to try cutting, followed by right clicking and choosing 'paste as plain text'. Here goes!
Cistus originate from dry, rocky parts of the Mediterranean and Canary Islands, and so are drought-tolerant and low maintanance. They produce masses of flowers in midsummer, but each lasts only one day. This is one of the hardiest, most compact Cistus and is justifiably popular, with its papery, white flowers with bright yellow centres that appear from June to July and wavy-margined, dark green leaves. Try it in a a large, patio container, in a gravel garden, or at the front of a sunny, mixed border. It does, however, require protection from harsh north or east winds.
