The Q&A Archives: The average size of a full mature plant

Question: What is the average size for a matured Lavaterra also known as Assurgentiflora (Island Mallow) which I learned is grown in Channel Island of California

Answer: Edna,

The size of a Lavaterra depends on the variety. The standard type (Lavatera maritima) grows to 4 to 6 feet tall and wide.

Lavatera x 'Red Rum' reaches only 4 feet tall and wide.

Lavatera x 'Summer Kisses' to 3 1/2 ft. tall and wide.
