Pot Size: full quart


Plant Description

This is a robust perennial reaching 6 feet with many stems arising from a crown. A mature plant has the aspect of a medium-sized shrub so Rose Mallow is most suitable as an accent plant or in natural areas. The flowers are white with blood red centers and are up to 8 inches across, blooming in midsummer. Rose Mallow takes full sun and moist soil. As with other members of the Mallow family, Japanese beetles love the tender petals and leaves, and so require a watchful eye.
