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.
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.
