Musk Mallow is a close cousin to the Hollyhock, but much shorter in habit. Plants form a bushy mound of deeply-cut leaves with a pleasant musky fragrance.
Satiny single hibiscus-type flowers appear during the summer, in a range of pink shades. Although not long-lived, this will often self sow and come back for years. Cutting plants back hard in August will encourage the plants to winter and survive for longer.
