Andeimalva, Cristaria (Andean Mallows) & Modiola (Carolina Bristlemallow)

Andean Mallows belong to small genera which consist of ony few species native from the Andes in South America. They are slightly woody perennials to woody, medium sized shrubs with numerous showy rose flowers. They are easily grown in pots in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. Keep drier in winter at a minimum of some 10°C.
Carolina Bristlemallow is the only species in the monotypic genus Modiola and is probably native of South America. It is a short-lived, fully winterhardy perennial with trailing stems and tiny orange flowers. It will readily self-sow and might need some control.
Sow seeds on top of any well drained substrate, cover slightly with soil and keep pots in full sun at some 20°C throughout the year and soil always slightly moist from beneath. A temperature drop at night down to some 10°C to 15°C will significantly enhance germination in several species.
