Summerific Series Rose Mallow
Zone 4 - 9
Definitely a WOW plant. This is a large, shrub-like perennial producing huge (20 cm), saucer-shaped, flowers which are painted with various shades of pink. Gorgeous contrasting dark foliage. Long flowering from July to September. Vigorous with great upright, compact habit. A spectacular addition to your sunny garden. HEIGHT: 90-100 cm SPREAD: 120-150 cm NOTE: Depending on the weather may not be available until mid-to-late May. May still be dormant.
Plant in a hot, sunny location as it requires lots of good summer heat to bloom well. Usually will flower later in the summer and into the fall. A few important facts to remember. This is a true perennial, not a woody shrub. In the spring cut it back to the ground. Rose Mallow will not show any sign of life in the spring until the ground has heated up. In some areas and depending on the weather this might not be until well into June. Don't give up too soon. This plant will develop a large tap root system and it absolutely hates to be moved. Rose Mallow is very tolerant of heat and humidity. Spectacular and generally easy and carefree. Does not need staking.
NOTE: 2 GALLON CONTAINER SIZE
