Product Information

A popular garden shrub with large, bright pinky-purple blooms that cover this award-winning shrub from spring right into autumn. The flowers shimmer faintly with an iridescent lavender in the sun, making this a garden plant with the 'wow-factor'. The large hollyhock-like blooms are attractive to bees and butterflies so you can also do your bit to help conserve wildlife.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. Fully hardy and easy to care for, Lavatera deserves a prominent place in any garden, where it will bring a colourful display when other plants are beginning to look tired - it's fast-growing stems filling borders with subtle colour and structure.

Not just a pretty face, the upright branches are decked with semi-evergreen palmate leaves - making it an ideal feature that can extend interest through many seasons when grown in a large pot or in your border.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, Lavatera maritima will reach an approximate height of 1.5m.

Top Tips

To ensure plenty of flowers, lavatera appreciates being planted in a sunny position, sheltered from strong winds.

Care Information

  • Grow in a sheltered spot in full sun with a humus-rich moist soil, keep well-watered as these plants don't like to dry out.
  • Happy in a large container as long as you keep it well-watered.
  • Trim any dead or damaged growth each year in mid spring and remove faded flowers. Hibiscus flower on the current season's growth, so pruning encourages them to flower prolifically.
