Lavatera Trimestris MIX, rose mallow

£0.95

An annual growing to 120 cm (47 in) tall by 45 cm (18 in) wide, producing shallow funnel-shaped flowers in summer, in shades of white and pink, with maroon centres and maroon veining on the petals.

Commonly grown as ornamental flowers. Bees love the flowers.

An easily grown plant, succeeding in any ordinary garden soil. Prefers a light well-drained moderately fertile soil in full sun. A soil that is too rich encourages foliar growth at the expense of flowering. Tolerates maritime exposure. Succeeds in dry soils. Plants are moderately fast-growing.

A very ornamental plant. The cut flowers last a long time in water.

A good bee plant.

Sow in situ in the spring. Germination should take place within a few weeks.

 Edible uses
