Lavatera Thuringiaca Rosea
Tree Mallow Rosea is an RHS AGM winning semi-evergreen tree mallow that reaches 2.5 metres with pretty pink funnel-shaped flowers. This shrub suits large borders and gravel gardens.

Lavatera Thuringiaca are part of the mallow family hence their more common name ‘tree mallow’. They are native to Eastern Europe, Asia and Russia. The cultivar Rosea is a cross between Lavatera Thuringiaca and Lavatera Olbia the Mediterranean mallow. It is a strong performer with striking flowers that require little care.

The foliage of Tree Mallow Rosea is greeny-grey, maple-shaped and sits at regular intervals on long flexible stems that can reach 2.5 metres in height. Foliage falls with the frosts and soft stems die back in colder months though it may remain semi-evergreen in warmer parts of the UK.

Funnel-shaped light pink flowers measuring 8 cms across arrive in July and regularly renew themselves well into autumn. Flowers bloom from large tight buds and are loved by bees that can access the open centres.

Tree Mallow Rosea is a tough perennial that copes with drought and poorer soils. It’s a good choice for low maintenance spaces.

Height And Spread of Lavatera Thuringiaca Rosea
Tree Mallow Rosea will reach a height of 2.5 metres and spread across 1.5 metres even when cut to the base each winter.

How Hardy Is Lavatera Thuringiaca Rosea
This is a very hardy shrub that can withstand UK sub-zero winters. It is tolerant of some drought and rarely develops pests or disease.

How To Use Lavatera Thuringiaca Rosea
Tree Mallow Rosea is a big shrub and best suited to a mixed border where it has space to grow and display its beautiful flowers in summer.
It is possible to grow them in a plant container as they are hardy enough to survive some drought but for the best display they should be regularly watered and fed. Be sure to weigh the container down as tall branches may topple a container when it is windy.

Its low maintenance nature means Rosea suits busy gardeners and wildlife-friendly spaces that enjoy a pretty summer display.

How To Care For Lavatera Thuringiaca Rosea
This is a tough, perennial shrub that’s not fussy about soil type happily growing in chalk to clay if it’s well-drained.
It enjoys a sunny spot best but will manage in a partially shady spot. However it will struggle to flower in deep shade. A sheltered area will help protect the large delicate flowers from wind and rain.
In early spring cut the stems down to ground height and mulch well.
