Lavatera thuringiaca, the garden tree-mallow, is a species of Lavatera native to eastern Europe and southwestern Asia, from southern Germany south to Italy, and east to southern Russia, Kazakhstan, and Turkey.[1][2]

It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 1.8 m tall. The leaves are up to 9 cm long and broad, palmately lobed with three or five lobes, and downy with greyish hairs. The flowers are pink, 3–6 cm diameter, with five petals; they are produced throughout the summer.[1][3][4][5]

There are two subspecies:[1][2]

  • Lavatera thuringiaca subsp. thuringiaca. Most of the species' range, except as below. Upper leaves bluntly lobed.
  • Lavatera thuringiaca subsp. ambigua (DC.) Nyman. Southern France, Italy, western Balkans. Upper leaves acutely lobed.

Garden plants

Most of the popular shrubby garden cultivars traditionally listed under this species are actually hybrids between it and Lavatera olbia; these hybrids are now named Lavatera × clementii.[1] The following cultivars have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit:-[6]
