Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


This member of the Mallow family has a distinctive appearance because of its deeply lobed leaves. Other mallows usually have leaves that are unlobed or shallowly lobed. The beautiful flowers are large, considering the small size of the plant, but they remain open for only a short time. Another common name for this species is Venice Mallow.
