Zebrina is a mallow variety that features bold spikes of lavender round flowers with purple stripes that rise above the foliage from mid-summer to mid-fall. Lovely in gardens, beds or balconies, it’s also valued for culinary and medicinal purposes. Blossoms are used to make tea, wine and vinegar, while young leaves and immature fruits go well in salads. As a medicinal plant it is used to treat many diseases. Last but not least, its breath-taking flowers are among the favourites of butterflies and hummingbirds, who pay their respects to these blooms daily. Few plants offer the long-lasting rewards of this beautiful heirloom Mallow.
