Macro Flower Saturday

Grown in a bush outside the winter gardens of Auckland Domain. Sorry I don't know the name. Do you know?
I found out:

Cistus purpureus description: This semi-hardy low growing shrub is suited to sunny dry borders. Deep purple blossoms are borne through out the summer, complimenting attractive dark green foliage and spreading habit. 1.m wide x 80cm.

I don't know the name, wish I did. This is beautiful!!! I wish I could touch and smell it. It looks papery thin and so delicate!

Not sure if this is the same one, but in Northern California a very similar plant grows called Rock Rose or Rose of Sharon. Beautiful!
