Napaea dioica

 

Glade mallow

N. dioica grows to about 2m in height. It produces white flowers which bloom for 4–5 weeks in early summer. The blooms open in the morning and close at sundown. Plant in moist to wet loam in full sun to part shade. Intolerant of dry soils. Best in a sheltered location protected from strong winds. Plants are dioecious and should be grown in clumps to assure cross pollination occurs.
