STRIPED GRAPE MALLOW Malva sylvestris
The plants are very easy to grow, and form small bushes of long-blooming flowers. Ideally plant in sun, though we find they do very well in also, and bloom prolifically!
Hardiness zones: 4-8
Location: Sun or part shade
Seeds per pack: 5
Germination: These seeds are very easy to germinate! Plant seeds in spring, after the danger of frost is past. Rake the ground, and then scatter the seeds on the raked ground. Lightly rake them in, so that they are just covered by the soil, being careful that they are not too deep. Water the area, and keep it continually moist until plants begin to grow. Once they are established they are somewhat drought tolerant. These seeds can also be started early indoors.
