This is the first year I have planted these, but I was so pleasantly surprised! In fact until this year, I had never even heard of them. It's called a purple zebra mallow.

That is truly beautiful! I've never heard of that plant, but it definitely is striking. Thanks for sharing it with us and God bless you.
Simply beautiful! Did these start from seed or did you purchase plants?
I purchased it as a small seedling and have collected the seeds from this plant to hopefully start another few around my garden. I guess we'll see what next year brings!
I got a plant just like that but my flowers were 2 different shades of purple on 1 bud (light lavender w/ darker shade in center). One thing I can say, it's a self seeder and can get away from you if you don't thin the bed. It does best in full sun and is a hardy perennial plant also. You can get seeds at any farm supply store, but not readily available everywhere. I am in central IL.
