Malva is drought tolerant, but can also withstand prolonged periods of moisture. Grows well in partial shade or full sun. A close cousin to the Hollyhock, but much shorter in habit. Plants form a bushy mound of deeply-cut leaves with a pleasant musky fragrance. Satiny single hibiscus-type flowers appear during the summer and bloom until late fall, in a range of pink shades. Although not long-lived, this will often self sow and come back for years. Cutting plants back hard in August will encourage the plants to winter and survive for longer. Seedlings that appear may be easily moved while still small. Attractive to butterflies, and it's rabbit/deer resistant.

Heirloom, GMO's, Organic..What does it all mean?


* None of the seeds I sell are genetically engineered. (I am against gmo's )


*Quality seeds at low prices. (I'm not against this, and you won't be either! )


I grow all my own seeds and sell only my most recent harvest. The pictures above are from my own garden. *The Kitty cat is mine too!!

The word "heirloom" is not an officially defined word (as the word "organic" is). In other words, pardon the pun, it is left up to the people using it to state what they mean.

When I state that a variety is an heirloom, I mean that it is an open pollinated variety developed before 1940, but was not used in modern large-scale agriculture.


Open pollinated seed saving is the oldest of the three methods, likely predating agriculture itself. All heirloom seeds are open pollinated. When a breeder raises a population of open pollinated plants that are of a like variety and keeps pollen from other varieties from entering the patch (generally accomplished with just distance from another variety), she or he will have the ability to save open pollinated seeds from the patch.
