Lavatera x clementii 'Barnsley Baby' (Large Plant)


Hardy Shrub

At last - a Tree Mallow for the patio! This compact, free flowering, deciduous shrub grows to only 90cm (36"). A profusion of large mallow flowers to 7.5cm (3") smother the stems with pink-tinged white petals surrounding a rosy pink eye. Fantastic in patio containers, these are hard to beat for endurance, drought resistance (once established), ease of growing and sheer flower power! Height: 75cm (30") Spread: 60cm (24").

Ideal For:
cut flower garden, patio, cottage gardens
Flowering Period:
June, July, August, September

In borders, grow Lavatera in any moist well drained soil. Position in full sun. For patio containers, repot Lavatera plants using a well drained, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established Lavatera requires only occasional attention. Pruning Lavatera is best undertaken in spring when all risk of frost has passed and the buds begin to swell. Prune all stems hard to about 30cm above ground level. Lavatera can be slow to break bud in spring so be patient with plants that appear to have died over winter - they may just be dormant still!

    My Lavatera came well packed and secure. The compost was really moist and there were no damaged leaves it's a lot bigger than i thought it would be and it's a nice looking plant. Van meuwen don't deliver till the plant is ready and they are worth waiting for but there will be some people ordering that moan about it because they don't read the description.
