Lavatera arborea variegata is a short lived perennial and sometimes flowers the first year from seed but it's the variegated leaves that really stand out especially in winter. The woody stems can reach small tree like proportions to 6ft or more supporting the unusual large mottled and splashed white variegated leaves. During summer and autumn clusters of 2" pink to red flowers appear adding to the attraction. Plant in a warm sunny position with a well drained soil. Very fast growing attaining 6ft tall and 3ft across in the first year from seed! We find it hardy to about -8C
