Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina'

Description :

An avalanche of flowers in midsummer

Malva sylvestris is a cousin of the common mallow and the hollyhock and an emblematic cottage garden plant.

The Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina' cultivar is free flowering in the summer and autumn from July until the end of September.

Lavender purple flowers with deep purple stripes. This will add a touch of the exotic to your summer beds!

In rich soil, this mallow quickly develops into a small shrub with an upright habit. Pruning it into shape will prolong flowering and will also mean you will not need to stake it.

However, the drawback of such vigorous growth is that these plants are not very long-lived.

But not to worry! Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina' is an ephemeral or biennial which has worked out how to survive by reseeding faithfully and quite naturally.

Grow in the sun or light shade in ordinary soil. Resists summer drought. Hardy.

Goes very well with Verbena bonariensis
