Malva sylvestris | Zebrina
This is one tough little perennial. Malva sylvestris Zebrina sports soft pink flowers with striking, raspberry-purple veins, achieving a pinwheel effect. These pretty flowers are produced in abundance from early summer to frost on this shrubby plant. Both the flowers and the foliage are great for cutting. Plant in full sun to maximise flowering, although some afternoon shade is fine.
Heat and drought are not a problem for this plant once it is established. Although it is sometimes short-lived, Malva will self-seed readily assuring future generations of plants. Not overly fussy about soil type, but does like a well drained position.
