Sidalcea is a genus in the Malvaceae, family that is native to western N-America. They are tall plants resembling hollyhocks, but are more delicate and hardier here in Iceland. They flower in late summer bearing pink, purple or white flowers.

Propagation:


Division in spring or fall.


Seed - sown in February - March.

Seed lightly covered and stored at 20°C (68°F) until germination. This variety does not come 100% true from seed, so some variation in flower colour should be expected.

A hybrid between prairie mallow (S. malviflora) and other species. It is tall and needs staking.
