Cultivar Comments: Elegant white flowers are very attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. This white version of Scarlet Rose-mallow adds a lush, tropical look to North Carolina landscapes. However, this vigorous and sturdy southeastern native perennial is perfectly hardy here. This showy herbaceous perennial can be a focal point in any garden. This variety grows more shrublike and produces more flowers as it matures. Try growing this plant in your perennial border or at the edge of a pond.
