One of the best native perennials for scrambling across hot, water-starved soils, Purple Poppy Mallow delights with a very heavy season of bloom in late spring and early summer, followed by intermittent blooms right into autumn. Easy to grow in any sunny, well-drained soil, it naturalizes readily and spreads to cover all those bare, difficult-to-plant spots.
These blooms are magnificent, so richly colored they appear to glow, and borne profusely above the large, lobed dark green foliage. Measuring 2 1/2 inches wide, they are equally as deep, with a small white-to-yellow center and a nicely cupped shape that gives them their common name of Poppy Mallow. Always the brightest flowers in the garden, they carpet the sunny landscape in unforgettable jewel-like tones!
