Cultivation Annual mallow
The Annual mallow have a one or two year development cycle. These plants have an erect, columnar development. The Annual mallow is medium in size and 60 cm in height; in the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a pink colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Light Annual mallowSole pieno
We suggest to position the The Annual mallow in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. We advise cultivating the The Annual mallow outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.These plants have an annual development, therefore when it becomes cold they deteriorate, and get completely eradicated.

Water Annual mallowTenere asciutto
Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks . As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, usually waterings is interrupted because these plants can't bear harsh temperatures.

Pests Annual mallow
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Mold Annual mallow
We advise locating these annual plants in a dissolved soil, with an elevated drainage.
