The fruit is a capsule containing many seeds. Helianthemum are known to form symbioses with mycorrhizal fungi. In the Mediterranean they are associated with Terfeziaceaethe desert truffles.
Together, plant and fungus may have a beneficial effect on the arid local landscapes, preventing soil erosion and desertification. Some symbiotic pairs include Helianthemum salicifolium and the truffle Tirmania niveaand H.
lippiu One of the most commonly observed mycorrhizae on Helianthemum is a member of a different family, Cenococcum geophilum. This fungus is not host-specific, and it often associates with oaksas well. Some studies suggest that Helianthemum and oaks growing together in a habitat may “share” their mycorrhizae.

Helianthemum are food plants for the larvae of some Lepidoptera species, such as the large grizzled skipper and the silver-studded blue. Several Helianthemum species, and the numerous hybrids and cultivars derived helianthemun them, are widely grown as ornamental plantspopular in rockeries.
A broader range of colours is available among the cultivars, including bright salmon-pink to dark red.
They are best grown in well-drained soil in full sun, and have a long flowering period from spring to summer. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
