Malva moschata / Pink Musk Mallow / Seeds

A graceful hardy perennial native to the British Isles.  Musk Mallow flowers all summer from July to September, with a profusion of rose-pink flowers and fern like leaves, growing to a good height of 60-90cm.  In a sunny and fertile spot it will grow well with blue delphiniums, matching the growth nd providing a nice colour contrast.


Musk Mallow is a very adaptable plant, looking good in wildflower gardens and in the border, and needs very little maintenance.  Plants prefer an open or sunny to part-shady site and well drained soil.

 

Pack of approx 200 seeds.  Sow in autumn in a seed tray or spring directly in the ground.  Easy to grow and fast to mature, flowering in the first year.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
