Chaparral mallow. Open, evergreen shrub to 6’ with vigorous, spreading rhizomes. The gray-green, shallowly lobed leaves give way to soft pink flowers in open panicles. Best in full sun with infrequent summer water, the chaparral mallow is useful on dry slopes mixed with other native shrubs or combined with Mediterranean perennials and shrubs. Hardy to 20F. Coastal ranges of California and Baja California.
