Hello everyone.

My neighbour has this lovely large shrub, must be nearly 10ft tall, flowers every year and he never prunes or touches it. he just says it keeps looing amazing every year.

We have no clue what it is, his wife was the gardener and she sadly died. I rather fancy some in my garden but need to know what it is called!?

    Looks like a Lavatera - a tree mallow

    Could do with a close up but it looks like a mallow to me.

    Well, thanks very much. I reckon it is a Tree Mallow then!

    I shall look up online and see where I can get one.

    Thanks everyone, very kind.

    They're widely available Ash - I would think most garden centres will have them

    See original post

     we're good Pete.

    It is too hot, just went out to pick sawfly larvae off the solomons seal and have a bite/sting on each hand so retiring to do some paper work now. What do we call 'paper work' now it's all on line?
