Lavatera Trimestris, rose mallow - Regis Ruby

£0.95

Ruby Regis produces deep pink flowers, brighter than Silver Cup. Plants grow 45-60cm in height. Remove old flowers to promote & extend flowering.

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.
