Lavatera Barnsley Baby x 3 (7cm)
Lavatera (also known as Tree Mallow) is a very fast growing plant that flowers in its first year. Barnsley Baby is one of the prettiest varieties, producing an abundance of large saucer-shaped flowers to 7.5cm (3"). The petals are like tissue paper with pink-tinged white petals surrounding a rosy pink eye. Due to its compact nature, it is the perfect plant for growing in patio containers and small gardens. It attracts bees and butterflies, too. They prefer free-draining soil in full sun. Once established, plants are very low maintenance and will even tolerate short periods of drought. One plant in a 30cm pot is ideal. Height: 75cm. Spread: 60cm. Flowering period June to September. Robust and hardy shrub.
