This cousin to the Hollyhock has similar satiny flowers, in a soft creamy-apricot shade, with contrasting salmon-peach stamens. Plants form an upright, bushy clump that may need to be staked if grown in rich soil. A short-lived perennial or biennial, Mallows will often flower themselves to death in the first year, but coming back from self-sown seedlings. Excellent in containers, or the sunny border. In cold regions this is well worth growing, because of the long blooming season. Flowers are attractive to butterflies. Possibly a hybrid of Alcea X Althaea.
