Also called “tree mallow”, this lovely species blooms late along with the cosmos, and in the same colors—white and pink. As the weather cools, the pink flowers become deep cerise. This is a Mediterranean native with deep green, rounded leaves and hibiscus-like blooms. Plants are handsome and stately.

      Comments about American Meadows Rose Mallow Seeds:

      I've had these plants before when a neighbor gave me some of hers and I loved them, so I decided to get my own seeds. They weren't as healthy as those I received from my neighbor, but still beautiful.

      So-so germination; not a favorite

          Comments about American Meadows Rose Mallow Seeds:

          I bought a bag of these seeds and planted them in a corner garden where I also have large hibiscus plants. The blooms are similar, and I thought they would complement each other nicely. I found so-so germination in peat pellets and a covered flat when I tested my bag of seeds, but I did not think it warranted a complaint. When I broadcast the seeds into soil, I had similar results, and actually did not mind the low germination after I saw the plant and its bloom. It was not one of my favorite plants. I gave some of the seeds away, and scattered the remainder of last year's bag in the same garden area Spring 2013. I have found that I like them better than last year, but they are still not one of my favorite. All of my blooms have been pink. I have discovered blooming plants late spring throughout the summer, and not just late summer to all according to the product description. Enjoyment is just a matter of personal preference, and I cannot reduce the star rating because of that. I give rose mallow three stars simply because it did not germinate as well as others of A.M.'s "easy" products sold in bulk for broadcasting across prepared soil.

            Comments about American Meadows Rose Mallow Seeds:

            I received a few free packets of 'seed' From 'AmericanMeadows', it contained several 'Rose Mallow' seeds in them. I was very happy with the plants that grew from them, so I bought a small 'bulk' bag of white/pink mix'Rose Mallow' seed from 'AmericanMeadows' and have planted some of it in select spots already this spring. It is growing already here. The Honey Bees really loved it last summer.

            USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

            To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

            • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
            • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
