Canary Shrub Mallows and Mediterranean Shrub Mallows are excellent pot plants for any well drained, slightly humus rich to inorganic, rocky soil in a sunny spot. Reduce watering to a minimum in winter, keep at a minimum of some 10°C. Both Canary species are highly ornamental, robust and easy going plants, yet slow growing species.
Sow seeds flat at some 15°C to 20°C throughout the year in any well drained, yet humus rich soil. Keep pots in full sun and soil always slightly moist. Seed from most Lavatera species will germinate within 2 to 6 weeks at room temperature, Lavatera phoenica germinates irregularly over several (up to six) months. Keep seedlings in full sun, especially in winter.
10 seeds per package, unless noted differently.
