Lavatera






LAVATERA ARBOREA.--Tree Mallow. Coasts of Europe, (Britain). A

stout-growing shrub reaching in favourable situations a height of fully

6 feet, with broadly orbicular leaves placed on long stalks. The flowers

are plentiful and showy, of a pale purplish-red colour, and collected

into clusters. It is a seaside shrub succeeding best in sheltered

maritime recesses, and when in full flower is one of the most ornamental

of our native plants. There is also a beautiful variegated garden form,

L. a. variegata.
