Growing: Lavatera

Botanical Name: Lavatera trimstris
Life Cycle: annual, self-sowing
Planting Time: spring
Height: 2' to 4'
Exposure: full sun to partial shade

Propagation: seeds, self-sowing on bare ground

Growing Hints: In the spring, sow seeds directly in the ground or place seedlings 3 to 4 inches deep at 3-foot intervals. Lavatera are wildflowers and difficult to transplant so they should be planted where you want them to grow. Plants will live one year, flower profusely, and usually die after the first frost. Reseeding is possible on bare ground.
Interesting Facts: A European native, Lavatera is now found in all regions of North America.

my LAVATERA grows year after year here in Northern France in a very soggy place.
Just thought I would share that with you.
