Tree Mallows are terrific for summer and autumn display, especially when grown as patio specimens. Deep pink to near-red Hollyhock-like flowers appear all summer long and into the fall. This woody shrub is usually cut back hard each spring to a height of 8 to 12 inches. In colder regions Lavatera may be grown in a container and overwintered indoors.
