  • Anisodontea elegans Princess, more commonly known as Cape Mallow, is a patio tree that is a highly regarded, garden favourite, as well as being loved by butterflies and bees. This half-hardy perennial bears stunning, bright pink flowers with a green, star shaped design dispersing from the centre. The lush, green foliage surrounds the blooms, with both being held up by a subtle, lollipop stem to create an eye-catching display in borders, patios or plant displays.
  • The genus of this tree is Anisodontea, a genus of flowering plants from the mallow family that are mainly native to South Africa. Most varieties within this genus are classed as half-hardy and will thrive best in locations of cooler tempertures, whilst benefitting greatly off of full sunlight.
  • The gorgeous flowers of this Anisodontea will bloom from May - October, bringing eye-catching shades of pink and a burst of green from the centre. Due to the brightness provided by the petals, the tree will standout with ease, especially when joined by the green foliage and subtle, lollipop stem that holds it all in place.
  • Planting this tree in moist, well-drained, rich fertile soil is best for its long term growth, alongside ensuring the soil remains moist through regular watering. In terms of which conditions suit it most, full sunlight is best, whilst keeping it slightly sheltered will allow it some respite. Move this Anisodontea to a frost-free greenhouse during Winter.

Anisodontea elegans Princess is a gorgeous patio tree that is a favourite of butterflies and bees. They are easily attracted during the growing season, which comes between May and October. This period sees stunning pink and bright green colours throughout the petals, with the green forming a star-shaped design in the centre of each flower. You are guaranteed to have a standout addition in the garden with this tree that, when given the correct care, will thrive and flourish with ease. You should position it in full sunlight with some partial shade necessary to give it some respite. Water so the soil remains moist and it will undoubtedly look great in any border, patio or plant display, with the dark green foliage and effective, lollipop stem holding it all in place.
