C × loretii Rouy & Fouc

A hybrid between C. ladanifer and C. monspeliensis which has been found wild and also raised in gardens. There is a spotted form in commerce with flowers about the size of those of C. monspeliensis and with linear-lanceolate leaves, intermediate between those of the parents. The plant once grown in gardens as “C. loretii” is C. × lusitanicus ‘Decumbens’.
