Light:Full Sun-Part Shade
Prairie Mallows are related to Hollyhocks and produce spikes of similar satiny flowers, though smaller in size, held on compact, bushy plants. This strain has flowers in a delicate soft-pink shade that blends with nearly anything. Stems are upright, and nice for cutting. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. Prune back hard after blooming, and plants may flower a second time in the fall. Should be divided every 2 to 3 years in early spring.Plant in well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil in full sun. Avoid heavy soils or those prone to waterlogging. Protect with a dry winter mulch during winter.
