Buy Lavatera × clementii 'Burgundy Wine' mallow: Stunning dark pink, hollyhock-like blooms

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-growing
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This vigorous, semi-evergreen subshrub produces a succession of distinctively veined, dark pink, hollyhock-like blooms from June to September. One of the best compact varieties, it's perfect for a sheltered, well-drained, sunny border. To prevent wind damage reduce the flowered stems by one half in autumn and prune hard each spring.

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