Growing Malva (Mallow)

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.
