Malva Plants (Hollyhock Mallow Plants)
The genus Malva contains about thirty species of annuals, biennials, and perennials.  These
species are found in dry, open habitats, waste ground, and roadsides, throughout Europe,
North Africa, and temperate Asia.  The rounded kidney-like leaves are either toothed, shallowly
lobed, or pinnasect (opposite lobes that are deeply cut, almost to midrib).  Grown for ease of
culture and unique flower forms and colors.  Our malva offerings are perennial plants that
offer large blooms, long blooming seasons, and durability to the garden border.
Malva Growing Tips
  • Plant in a well-drained soil that is located where the plants will receive at least six hours
    of direct sunlight.
  • Space plants eighteen to twenty inches apart to allow proper air circulation, especially
    needed in rich soils where leaf cover is more dense.  
  • Keep soil evenly moist for a longer blooming season and better overall displays.
  • Avoid quick feeding nitrogen rich fertilizers, as they will decrease the blooming season,
    create more leaf cover, and a more favorable environment for fungal and bacterial
    pathgens.  In arid soils use compost or like organic matter instead.
