This compact mallow, native to South Africa, is a terrific specimen in the drought tolerant garden. A real trooper, it will bloom throughout summer with very little care or attention. The flowers are 3 inches in diameter, a warm pink with a raspberry eye and veins, and will cover the plant. For large pots, this cape mallow is a great centerpiece. Frost hardy to 25 degrees, it will need protection at colder temperatures.
