    About this genus:

    Sidalcea (sid-al-se-a) is a genus of the botanical family Malvaceae (the Mallows). It gets its name from Sida and Alcea (related genera). It contains several species of flower known generally as checkerblooms, checkermallows, or prairie mallows. They are native to West and Central North America.

    In mid- to late summer the clumps of toothed basal leaves produce erect flowering stems, with 5-petalled mallow-type flowers in terminal racemes, in shades of pink, white and purple.

    They grow almost anywhere in our garden - perhaps we over-use them! Just don't put them in full shade or have them sitting in water. Combine them with anything purple,pink, or white!
