Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina' Plants

  • $ 9.95

Malva 'Zebrina', is one of the first perennials we started offering and one of the few that is still hanging around.  It is hard to get rid of a top performing classic.  The glossy leaves provide a nice backdrop to annuals and then when they erupt in bloom in early June they are a welcomed treat.  They bloom for weeks and the songbirds love the seeds. Classified more as a short lived perennial, but will self sow if allowed.  Easy to grow and care for.
