This mallow has quite an interesting past having been on the brink of extinction in the 1980's brought back to a sustained level in the 90's and then again, due to invasive vegetation on Langham Island (only known area that this flower is endemic to) thought to be extinct. Despite it's bumpy road, it has now become the state flower of Illinois and enjoys a protected status there. Gardeners across the U.S. are always eager to answer the call for preservation and this little mallow has made it way into many gardens. Seeds offered are sustainably grown and not wild collected.

How to Grow Mallow Sow seeds 0.5cm/ 1/4" deep in pots of pre-moistened seed starting medium. Water in then place pots in a warm area in indirect light. Germination should occur in 10-20 days. Keep pots well watered (misting or bottom watered to avoid damage to tiny seedlings). Once 4+true leaves appear the seedlings can be transplanted to pots or prepared flower bed.
