Sidalcea are clump forming annuals or perennials with upright stems that hold racemes of white, purple or pink mallow-like flowers during the summer. Sidalcea are best suited to beds and borders and are perfect for a cottage style garden. You should expect to see Sidalcea grow to an approximate height of up to 1m (3ft) and an approximate spread of up to 50cm (20in).
Sidalcea are best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of sand, chalk or loam within a neutral, acidic or alkaline PH balance. Sidalcea can be short-lived if they are planted in heavy soils. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or partial shade.
Sidalcea are an easy to care for plant so do not require much maintenance. Cut back the stems hard after flowering to encourage fresh foliage and to extend their flowering season. Sidalcea do not like being waterlogged and they do not like winter wet, so itís best to give them a mulch over the winter, particularly when frost or snow is forecast.
It is possible to propagate Abutilon by seed or by division in the spring.
