Lavatera x clementii 'Rosea'

 

Tree Mallow 'Rosea'

Lavatera can be annuals, biennials, perennials or subshrubs. They have palmately lobed leaves on long stems, and they bear large, funnel-shaped flowers in Summer. Tree mallows, or shrubby mallows, are fast growing plants that flower in their first year, and form large bushy shrubs. 'Rosea' is a medium-sized, semi-evergreen subshrub with hairy, greyish stems and leaves, and rose pink flowers.

Keep the cuttings moist until well rooted.Harden off when well rooted and pot on into individual pots increasing the airing to let the leaves to develop. Remove rotten, dying or dead cuttings regularly.
