Product Details

Product Details

Big, bushy Malva alcea var. fastigiata 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.

For more information on growing Malva, click Growing Guide.




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.


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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


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.

Still around 23 years later

We purchased this from WFF in 2000. It still comes up every year, though not in the same spot where we originally planted it. It has somehow found places it likes better, I guess, but it’s still a welcome sight in the spring, has stayed healthy, and blooms profusely. Easy enough to remove if it comes up where you don’t want it.

Nice cottagey flower

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.

It didn't make it. It just died.

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.

arrived in excellent condition

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.

Latin Name Pronunciation: mal'vuh  

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.
