RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Musk Mallow- Malva moshata is the perfect wildflower plant for adding of bright splash of pink to a summer flowering meadow. It is well suited to all wide variety of soils, but grows best on well-drained ground in full sun. Musk Mallow has large showy flowers that grow in dense clusters and are often visited by bees. Plants also host the Painted Lady as a breeding butterfly which will lay its eggs on the plant. The pink flowers appear from July to September, and blend particularly well with other meadow plants. In the wildflower garden Musk Mallow can be used in sunny flower borders or meadows and is particularly well suited to cottage gardens. It will also grow quite well in semi-shade. Musk Mallow plants look best grown alongside other summer flowering wildflowers such as Oxeye daisy, Meadow cranesbill, Knapweed, Scabious, and Birdsfoot trefoil.


How to grow Musk Mallow seeds:
Musk Mallow seeds can either be sown into trays of compost in the spring or autumn. Germination is normally fairly easy but can occasionally be slow. The seedlings can then be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects
in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on
nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set
and fruit development. Find out more at: rhs.org.uk/plants
