Description and Cultural Plant Tips
Lavatera is a large, mounding, fast growing, evergreen shrub with light, lavender-pink flowers that can bloom year round in Marin County. These are easy to grow shrubs that tolerate heat, wind, and drought. It can be used in perennial or shrub borders, on slopes or hillsides. This is a great filler plant but lasts only about 5 years.
Plant slightly above soil grade in a sunny location with good drainage. Mulch 2- 3 feet out from the stem. Drought tolerant once established. Prune in late winter to promote flowering and denser form.
No significant pests or diseases.
