Plant Highlights

The Chaparral Mallow has attractive gray-green foliage but is most desired for it's clusters of pink to pale pink flowers that appear in abundance in spring but stay around through the summer in warm climates. It is fast growing, drought tolerant and useful for erosion control on slopes as well as a backdrop to dark foliaged plants or for use in a large-scale, sunny flower garden.
