Pinkflowered Bushmallow.

We currently do not grow this plant.

Pink flowered Bushmallow is an evergreen shrub to four foot with gray leaves and pink flowers. Native to the mountains of central California. It likes part-sun and dry conditions. Small birds love this plant. Butterflies like the flowers. Use as a back border planting. Stable here, the plant in the pictures is well over 20 years old. Doesn't sucker much, so after 20 years the plant is only three foot high and six feet or so across.
