Kashmir Tree Mallow


Notify Me

Another introduction in line with my GIANT plant Fetish. This unusual cultivar originates from the Himalaya of Kashmir, often found growing at extremely high elevations. In a garden setting it can grow to an impressive 8 to 10 feet in good soil, with showy, 2 inch pinkish/lavender flowers. The root and leaves have demulcent qualities common to all mallows and can be emetic if taken in large quantities. The leaves are also eaten as a green when young and the flowers are edible and pretty in salads. Prefers a moist site full or partial shade. Perennial. Very hardy to Zone 3.

Latin Name Lavatera cachmeriana
