Cistus Ladanifer is a species of flowering plant in the family Cistaceae.  It is native to the western Mediterranean region.

It is a shrub growing 1 - 2,5 m tall and wide. The flowers are 5 - 8 cm diameter, with 5 papery white petals, usually with a red to maroon spot at the base, surrounding the yellow stamens and pistils. The whole plant is covered with the sticky exudate of fragrant resin.
