All plants are sold in at least 9cm pots, NOT tiny plug plants!

Malva moschata alba (White Musk Mallow)


Plant Information

Aspect: Full Sun
Soil Type: Most Types
Colour: White

Pure white flowers contrast beautifully with the ferny foliage. 

The petals are textured like crepe, with a soft sheen resembling vinyl silk emulsion and the foliage is finely lobed and possesses the elegance of some ferns. 
In the centre of each flower there's a tall stigma surrounded by a raised collar of stamens. This arrangement, slightly similar to hibiscus, leaves the nectar-rich base of the flower wide open to bees.

A cottage garden classic but less frequently grown than the more usual pink version.

A very easily grown plant, carefree and requiring no maintenance, the plant will succeed in ordinary garden soil, though it prefers a reasonably well-drained and moderately fertile soil.

Flowers: June-Sept

Height and spread: 90cm

Common name(s): White Musk Mallow


  • All our plants are hardy and perennial (come back year after year) unless otherwise specified in the description.
  • Every plant we sell is sold established in at least a 9cm pot, although many are in bigger pots. Unlike some nurseries, we do not sell plug plants because these require ongoing care when you receive them. Our plants can be planted in your garden as soon as you receive them, or they can be left in their pots for several weeks until you are ready to plant them.
  • As we grow everything ourselves and cannot just buy more stock when levels are low, there will be times when certain varieties are unavailable until the next batch has grown on.
  • We are not technically 'organic' but, as far as possible, we limit the use of pesticides and chemicals. We are fortunate enough to be situated in the countryside and we enjoy the environment and natural world that surrounds us, so we do what we reasonably can to protect it.
  • For a limited time we are offering free delivery for orders over £50.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
