I love flower and vegetable gardening. Lucky to live on an island on the Southern BC Coast with a large variety of native and introduced species.

Malva Sylvestris 'Zebrina' syn. Alcea rosea 'Zebrina'

One of the best xeriscaping flowers I have run across so far. Will not only survive but thrive in poor soil and extreme drought conditions. This particular flower has gotten barely 2" of rain in the last 3.5 months. And it's still going strong. #zebramallow #xeriscaping #droughttolerant #autumnbloom

They're beautiful plants -I grew them when we lived in the city -had to pull them out after a couple of years as they kept spreading and spreading!

Yes! I'm amazed at how prolific they are. Nice to have that colour though when everything is dead and brown.
