Common Name: Common Mallow
Latin Name: Malva sylvestris
Description: A plant that has long stalks with prominent white hairs, with alternate leaves on long petioles along the stems. These leaves can be up to 6cm across. Occasionally, a short flowering stalk (peduncle) about 1" long will occur above the leaf axils, each stalk producing 1-3 flowers. In the centre of the flower, there is a central reproductive column. Each flower is replaced by a fruit that has a wheel-like shape in which the flat seeds are aligned in a circular row. The outer edge of these seeds is often hairy. The Common Mallow is found on roadsides, banks and waste places as well as woodland verges.
Flower Colour: Pink, Light violet, or white with pale violet lines along the flower length.
Flowering Times: June-September
Plant Height: 60cm-100cm
Management: The Common Mallow plant grows in open, (well drained), nutrient-rich soil, such as the edges of fields, waste ground, and near housing and farms. Common Mallow spreads by reseeding itself.
