Product Description

Anisodontea (African Mallow) 

History
The Anisodontea is a part of the Malvaceae, or Mallow, family. This family of plants contains over 200 genera with close to 2300 species. This plant originally came from South Africa and blooms all summer long. The Anisodontea also attracts bees to the many pink flowers.

Where to place the Anisodontea
It is best to place the Anisodontea in a sunny or partly shaded spot, preferably sheltered from strong winds.

Taking care of the Anisodontea
The Anisodontea should be watered regularly. The soil should not be allowed to dry out. These long flowering plants require a rich soil and some extra plant food on a regular basis.

Pruning
If the Anisodontea is growing out of shape, or is out of flowers, it can be pruned back to its original form. Also check to see if the plant is producing seed capsules. If this is the case, cut them off so the plant returns its energy to producing new flowers.
