Description

This extremely beautiful member of the mallow family is sought after by gardeners for its clusters of large saucer -shaped soft blue-purple flowers. They can range from the occasional white form through pale to deep purple. The leaves are somewhat like a grape’s , five lobed, like grey felt in appearance, dull green to grey above and lighter underneath, and are downy to touch. Flowers tend to be short lived but there is a great profusion produced in the summer months, and where it thrives it brightens up the garden in the summer months.

Sowing advice
Sow into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and cover thinly with sand or seed raising mix. Keep moist. Keep at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination usually occurs within 4 to 6 weeks although some seeds may take much longer.
