Malva moschata 'Rosea'
Musk Mallow - 9 cm
Malva moschata 'Rosea' is a variety of Musk mallow, one of the prettiest of British native perennials, with rich pink saucer-shaped flowers from late May to October, on stems with finely cut leaves. Loved by bees. Heart-shaped basal leaves have a faint musk scent-hence the common name. Height and spread 90cm by 60cm. Thrives in moist, well-drained soil, in sun. Tends to flop in rich soils. Cut back to basal foliage in spring.
