Cape Mallow
Malvaceae

This South African shrub grows quickly into a rounded shape about 4 ft. tall and wide, with small, lobed, bright green leaves. Notable for profuse production of inch-wide, dark-veined, pink to purple dark-eyed blooms resembling miniature hollyhocks; flowers come throughout warm weather, year-round in mildest climates. Good for borders and large containers. Sometimes sold as a single-trunk standard or “patio tree.”
