Janette - a guest has asked what the name of your Malva is - today on the question page. Obviously I can't help! I'd rather like to know as well, though - it's a beauty!

Thanks TT and Linda it would be a lovely colour for a dress
Thanks Spriz ,not been online for a few days ,but I,ll go look for the question ,this one is called Mystic Merlin,there is another with the name Mystic Marlot ,very similar in colour.This one I,ve had for about five years,grows to about six foot, only one to survive from three I bought ,cant even remember where ,think it was a flower market I came across ,not a thug lol I could save some seed,s for you if you,d like to give them a go.,but dont know if they would come true this colour ,but worth a try .....
