Lavatera maritima is a tree mallow from W. Mediterranean area so can take a little frost.
Pretty but fairly short-lived shrub.
With judicial pruning you can train this into a small standard tree of continuous floriferousity!
Picture to give an idea of shrub's growth habit. This plant is 1 year old.
