Description
Mallows are classic cottage garden shrubs, always popular for their hollyhock-like flowers that are borne throughout summer. The blooms of Lavatera x clementii 'Red Rum' are a flamboyant mauve-pink that stands out nicely against the green, three-lobed leaves. This rounded deciduous shrub has a bushy, branching habit that quickly fills gaps in borders. Lavatera x clementii 'Red Rum' is tough and resilient, requiring little maintenance once established. Height and spread: 120cm (48").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow lavatera plants in borders and containers outdoors in moist, well drained soil in full sun. When growing lavatera in containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, lavatera plants require only occasional attention. Pruning lavatera is best undertaken in spring when all risk of frost has passed and the buds begin to swell. Prune all stems hard to about 30cm above ground level. Mallow can be slow to break bud in spring so be patient with plants that might appear to have died over winter as they may still be dormant.
