Plant Overview

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 supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
