Photo - Tree Mallow (Lavatera maritima)

This fast growing shrub is covered with open flowers
that are similar to a hibiscus, but without the white fly issues.
This shrub can reach 8 feet tall and wide.  Tree Mallows look
best if they are trimmed hard (about 30%) in January and August.

  1. Do you know of any nurseries that have Tree Mallows in stock? Looking to add some more to my garden. Thanks.
