A lovely and compact deciduous to semi-evergreen sub-shrub sometimes known as Cape Mallow or African Mallow is a somewhat tender plant with hairy, lobed, incised green foliage and small to medium, pale pink flowers appearing from Summer through to Autumn. The flowers resemble Hibiscus with rich pink veining on each of the slightly overlapping petals. The flowers appear throughout the foliage as single blooms or loose panicles.
Plant in moist, well-drained soils and keep in full sun in a sheltered position or indoors under glass. A native of the warmer climes of Southern Africa, this plant is treated as more of a perennial in colder regions. Cold and frost may shorten its life if not cared for correctly.
