Lavatera 'Barnsley' Tree mallow

Posted: 26 August 2013
Overall: This plant will be bare of flowers and leaves most of the year, which adds to the pleasure when it comes back to life, the leaves in late spring and the buds about June/July. I am in SW Scotland.

Lavatera 'Barnsley' Tree mallow

Posted: 26 August 2013
Overall: I have had one of these for years getting a bit taller each year. I constantly forget it is there, it is so inconspicuous when not in flower. I have it growing on very sandy soil, in the shade of an apple tree though it gets full sun in the afternoon. Its my little surprise every year at this time.
