Product Details

Product Details

Large light pink to lavender flowers with deep magenta centers adorn a vigorous, shrubby perennial that’s superb as a background plant for the mixed border. The attractive gray-green leaves add to the appeal of this lovely Tree Mallow. Mature plants can grow to 6′, and they combine well with Ornamental Grasses and Eupatorium ‘Gateway’ at the back of the border.

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. 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.


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.

(Lavatera maritima)--common name, Tree Mallow

Tom Comeau from Woodland Hills Ca.

At the risk of sounding totally clueless about plants in general, I was under the impression that all plants had a season for blooming and one for dormancy. This incredible plant appears to bloom the year around. What a delight to see it blooming during the winter months, (which admittedly, are not brutal in our locale) and into spring and summer!!! The plant is reported to last no longer than 5 years--guess it burns itself out, but what a pleasure to see these blooms when everything else has gone to sleep. It's the first beautiful sight to greet us in the morning. It requires minimum care with very minimal automatic watering. I must get a companion plant to keep it company during its brief existence. With apologies for my general ignorance.

Latin Name Pronunciation: lav-ah-ter-ah

Full sun (afternoon shade is recommended in the South). Average garden soil. Has shrubby tendencies; wait until spring to prune away stems killed back by winter cold. Plants in the South are generally not long-lived; replace every 2-3 years or take cuttings to start new plants.
