Malva alcea fastigiata

Hollyhock Mallow

These bold plants really show off in the back of perennial or shrub borders or the wild garden. Their crepe paper-like flowers resemble Hollyhocks and range from white to purple to lavender-pink. Some Mallows have deeply cut, lacy leaves, and others have large, rounded leaves. All have flattened, round seed clusters which resemble tiny cheese rounds. Easily grown in Zones 4 to 7 in full sun and deep soil. In other zones, they may suffer from rust and caterpillar attack. Sold in containers in the spring. Grown from seed, they often bloom the first year. Self-sow freely.
