Deriving from the Lavatera olbia 'Rosea', CHAMALLOW ® shows a certain orginality compared to the classic varieties of Lavatera. This selection has a particularly compact, bushy and rounded growth. Its light green, slightly velvety foliage stays healthy. These qualities make it interesting for growing in containers.
In July - August, the straight branches have deep pink flowers. They are of medium size with even darker pink stripes.
To be planted in flowering hedges or in beds, together with shrubs and perennials.
Cut back hard in March, to strenghten the plant and to avoid it growing too big. Avoid autumn pruning, as there is a risk that the roots may rot.
