I do hope it stays small - my husband hates Lavatera, so if it grows BIG, it'll have to go. Tetra, I heaved out some Achillea ptarmica in the larger front bed to make space. :-)

you said you were going to dig that Achillea out. nice plant to replace it :o)

Nice one! Some Achillea take over the place ...had a couple like that grrr...Hey love that red mallow in the picture from Green Fingers! Are they really hardy?

Why don't the advertisers use LATIN names? Grrrrr....
I just looked at what's on offer, and I think they're Sidalceas, Tetra. I don't succeed with them, but most people do. 'Mallow' is something completely different, it could also be a native plant. Sorry, rant over.
