Buy Lavatera × clementii 'Barnsley Baby' mallow 'Barnsley Baby': A compact, but free-flowering shrub

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: light, moderately-fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    As the name suggests, this is a compact version of the cottage garden favourite. It shares all the sought after qualities of the original, and will produce lashings of soft pink flowers over an extended period from early summer. It is extremely undemanding and easy to grow, and its more diminutive stature makes it perfect for patio pots - or quickly filling gaps in a sunny border.

  • Garden care: Cut the stems back to within 30cm (12in) of ground level in spring, after all risk of severe frosts has passed. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure round the base of the plant. In exposed areas shorten branches by up to one half in autumn to minimise the risk of wind damage.
