Product Details

Product Details

Hollyhock Mallow. This big, bushy plant is a treasure for the midsummer garden, where its soft pink blooms on 3–4′ stems make a handsome display from July–October. The plants form thick crowns from which grow as many as 50 stems, each covered with dozens of small blooms above intricately lobed foliage. This is a plant that can carry a summer border all by itself. We recommend it with the soft yellow blooms of Coreopsis 'Moonbeam.'

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

arrived in excellent condition

Ann from west of Kentucky, Mississippi River

This plant started nicely amid iris and peonies around a bell stand with Japanese maple tree. It could not withstand a cat who decided to make his nap spot in the shade of this company. I am hoping that the roots will try again this spring.

It didn't make it. It just died.

Esther the Gardener from East Leroy, MI

I don't know what happened to it. It was blossoming and just like that it died. It has a beautiful flower and I was very disappointed to lose it. I am a Master Gardener, so I do know how to take care of flowers.

Nice cottagey flower

A viewer from Claverack NY

This is a beautiful plant that blooms all summer. The only problem I encountered was some kind of borer. I cut off the afflicted stalk and Malva continued on. It survived a very harsh winter. The variety WFF sells is especially nice -- it is a beautiful pale pink and has deeply cut leaves. Self seeds.

Grow in full sun (or partial shade in the South) and well-drained soil. M. alcea 'Fastigiata' tolerates poor, dry soil. Remove spent flowers to prevent excessive reseeding, but do allow a few seeds to mature as insurance, should the parent plants bloom themselves to death.
