Lavatera Thuringiaca Barnsley Baby is a dwarf deciduous tree mallow with white to pink trumpet flowers. It suits small gardens and containers.

Lavatera Thuringiaca are part of the mallow family which is native to Eastern Europe, Asia and Russia. The Barnsley Baby cultivar is the result of chance cross pollination and was discovered in the Netherlands in 1998. It’s thought one of the parent plants was the tree mallow Barnsley.

Tree Mallow Barnsley Baby is a vigorous grower with maple shaped mid green-grey leaves on upright slender stems. This vigorous shrub flowers profusely in the summer months with 5 petalled hollyhock type trumpet flowers that emerge white and mature to very pale pink. The centres have small red patches and easily accessed stamens that bees adore.

In winter the soft stems eventually die down to the woody base ready to grow and flower again the following year. This is an excellent choice for patio containers and borders that are not large enough for full sized tree mallows.

Height And Spread of Lavatera Thuringiaca Barnsley Baby
Tree Mallow Barnsley Baby is a dwarf cultivar that will reach a height of 1 – 1.5 metres and spread over the same.

How Hardy Is Lavatera Thuringiaca Barnsley Baby
This is a tough perennial shrub despite its fragile looking flowers. It’ll withstand sub-zero winters if the roots are well drained and it’s rarely bothered by pests.

How To Use Lavatera Thuringiaca Barnsley Baby
Tree Mallow Barnsley Baby suits cottage garden planting schemes and attracts pollinators to wildlife friendly spaces. It’s a good addition to small sunny borders that can’t accommodate a large mallow.

It’s the only tree mallow that will thrive in a large well-watered and fed container. Plant several around a bare deck or patio to fill it with summer blooms.

Tree mallows are a good investment plant as they grow back strongly each year and are tough enough to survive winter.

How To Care For Lavatera Thuringiaca Barnsley Baby
Tree Mallow Barnsley Baby is a tough, perennial shrub that’s not fussy about soil type happily growing in chalky to clay conditions if it’s well-drained. If grown in a container take care to water and feed it regularly.

It enjoys a sunny to partially shady spot and will struggle to flower in deep shade. An area sheltered from wind will help protect the large delicate flowers from damage.

In early spring cut stems down to 8 –10 inches in height and mulch well for a healthy display the next year.
