Here I am offering seeds from Malva assurgentiflora, also known as the Island Mallow, Mission Mallow, Royal Mallow, Island Tree Mallow, and Malva Rosa. Lavatera assurgentiflora is an often used synonym. I just love Island Mallow. It is beautifully stunning with its striped leaves and brilliant colors.
