Description / Zebrina Hollyhock Mallow

Few plants offer the long-lasting rewards of this heirloom Hollyhock Mallow! Not only is it floriferous over a very long season, but it self-sows, replenishing itself year after year in your sunny border. Beautiful pinwheel blooms in two shades of purple are breathtaking, and butterflies visit them regularly. Who could possibly ask for more?

Zebrina has graced cottage gardens for many years, and it's easy to see why. The 2-inch single blooms begin opening in midsummer in most climates, and continue right into fall, often continuing for 4 months or more. A soft shade of lavender, they are heavily veined with maroon-violet, creating a stripey, pinwheeled look that is just a little different on every bloom. Striking!

Butterflies and hummingbirds pay their respects to these blooms on a daily basis, but rabbits tend to leave the plant un-nibbled, which is a surprise and a pleasure. The flowering stalks are about 2½ feet high on compact, mounding plants that can reach 3 to 4 feet tall but just 18 to 24 inches wide. Zebrina is a good choice for the middle or back of the sunny border, where its dark green foliage serves as background for shorter plants, and its absolute MASSES of blooms can stand out brilliantly.

M. sylvestris is a rather short-lived perennial, but Zebrina has solved this problem by coming true from seed. Just let the the last blooms remain on the plant each fall, and in spring you'll see new little sprouts everywhere. Such a marvelous gift from a plant that will become your favorite the very first season you grow it!

Best of all, Zebrina is much more tolerant of hot weather than most Hollyhock Mallows, and demonstrates excellent resistance to disease. It grows readily in full sun and nearly any type of soil. Your sunny garden (not to mention your vases!) deserves this plant! Zones 4-8.

Cottage garden cute!
Review by janet barrigar
Bought 2 and planted in May 2022. Beautiful Flowers with a cottage look. I've tried growing Hollyhocks, but these are easier and pretty. I hope they come up next year and I will order more!

Review by Mary
I bought 3 of these this year, as I had one last year & loved it! It kept blooming way into quite cold weather before it died. I feed my hummingbirds & think they might have visited these flowers, but not sure. Also my 20++ year old evergreen Clematis that died back last year, came up again & bloomed early this year in March. ( it came from your nursery)

Review by MaryKay
a lovely plant in habit, color. Its sweet and demure personality belies its toughness. It grew in the area of my Philadelphia, (PA) garden with the worst, dry soil and asked for no special treatment.
