Neutral vossner On Sep 10, 2008, vossner from Richmond, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

It is a beautiful variegated plant but slow; my is it slow! Another reason I am rating it neutral is because of the flowers. At first I thought they were partially open and upon doing some research I see that's the way the flowers look. Certainly not like other fully open altheas. Mine is planted inground, full sun.
