(Malva sylvestris) Not a true hollyhock, but growing much the same, this Malva was widely planted in Victorian cottage gardens. It is one of the most beautiful plants we offer and one of the most popular heirloom plants at historic gardens. The flower spikes bloom profusely with lovely lavender flowers that have stunning deep purple stripes. Looks like a small, single hollyhock.

Review:

I wanted all interested to know common mallow such as Zebrina is considered an edible weed in Morocco and we treat it as a delicacy. Search online for ''Bakoula'' or ''Khoubiza'' recipe (those are simply the Moroccan names for common mallow). You will need Moroccan preserved lemon to make this traditionnal, very healthy dish. Look online for ''Quick Preserved Lemon'' recipe so you don't use the awfully tasting store-bought preserved lemon. We're very excited at the perspective of growing Zebrina and cooking its mature leaves this summer, the Moroccan way, or using its young leaves in salads in lieu of lettuce in the high heat of summer. As with most summer leafy vegetables, the younger the leaves are harvested, the better for raw eating and cooking older leaves is just fine.

Review:

These were included in a wildflower seed mix, and years later they showed up. While pretty, I am having a hard time getting rid of them, as they take over!

What are the pros? full sun, partial shade

They reseed themselves if prolific. They act as a biennial in northern climes if winters are not extremely cold. I would reccomend as an easy flower to grow. Thumbs up!!!

Review:

Good Germination, I sprinkled them on soil and watered them in when day temps were around 70, in long narrow containers between brick wall of house and brick patio ( that should take care of the self seeding issue, I hope). They get bright filtered light most of the day, about 2 hours of direct hot sun. We had a sudden very hot,( heat index 100-105) very dry spring and summer, but they did fine, as long as I watered when soil went dry ( as container plants tend to do). Pinched off the short infestation of mealy bugs, with no problem. I like the colors, I found you can tip prune to get bushier plants. The trick now will be to overwinter in the containers, but I suspect I could treat them as a long lived annual till hard freeze. I will be buying more for areas where self seeding is not a problem. They seem to be pretty carefree.
