This popular shrub is grown for the masses of white hollyhock-like flowers with red centres that smother its branches from June to September. The flowers age to a soft pink, and the deeply lobed grey-green leaves are pretty, too. Extremely long-flowering, this vigorous, semi-evergreen mallow will thrive in a well-drained shrub or mixed border, but needs plenty of space to spread itself out as it puts on tremendous growth in just one season. In cold areas of the country it is best grown against a warm wall to minimise wind and frost damage. Garden care: To prevent shrub from getting straggly, cut back hard to within 30cm (12in) of ground level in spring, after all risk of severe frosts has passed. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure round the base of the plant. In exposed areas shorten branches by up to one half in autumn to minimise the risk of wind damage.
