Description
I love the mallows. They bloom for a good long time, and wave their flower spikes above most other plants. (This one grows from 2 to 4 feet.) Zebrina is particularly beautiful, with big purplish-pink petunia-like flowers that go on and on.

          Comments about American Meadows Malva sylvestris Zebrina - Plant:

          I put these plants in outdoor vintage containers at about 2 AM before we were going out of the country for 3 weeks. We had a neighbor child do casual watering while we were gone. I was delighted to find them blooming and lush when we returned. That was 3 months ago and they've been steadily blooming since then! Absolutely gorgeous with a vivid violet color.

              I am a little surprised that the little guys not only made it but are thriving and looking beautiful. The photos don't do the plant justice, the blooms are just so beautiful.
