The genus Malva contains about thirty species of annuals, biennials, and perennials. These species are found in dry, open habitats, waste ground, and roadsides, throughout Europe, North Africa, and temperate Asia. The rounded kidney-like leaves are either toothed, shallowly lobed, or pinnasect (opposite lobes that are deeply cut, almost to midrib). Grown for ease of culture and unique flower forms and colors. Our malva offerings are perennial plants that offer large blooms, long blooming seasons, and durability to the garden border.
