Lavatera flowers are relatively new in my garden. Though I managed to grow them successfully last year, it seems I’m still working to discover exactly what makes them grow well. This season, I started the seed early in spring using the winter sowing method. The result was wondeful, tall flowers!
The photo above features the ‘Pink Regis’ lavatera that I was able to purchase from Floret last fall. I have been unable to find it elsewhere. It quickly became one of my favorite flowers in the garden with it’s pale silver-pink blooms.
‘Silver Cup’ lavatera is much more common. This variety of lavatera is yet another tall cultivar, which produces armloads of these lovely bright pink flowers. I just love the color contrast between these two different varieties.
Despite the fact that my plants began to bloom while the weather was quite rainy, the flowers have withstood most of the storms. I’m eager to continue to experiment with using these flowers in cut arrangements in the future. Have you ever grown lavatera? What did you think? I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section below. Thank you so much for visiting the blog!
