Plant Highlights

This selection of Mallow has spectacular deep coral flowers that absolutely glow. The almost non-stop flowers appear on 1'-4' stems rising above fuzzy gray-green foliage. Use this plant to add a blast of color to a succulent garden or in a desert border where it contrasts nicely with Apache Plume and beargrass. With a little additional water in summer Desert Mallow will bloom almost year round. Expect height of about 3' with 2-3' spread. Cut back hard after flowering to encourage fresh growth and a fuller appearance.
