This Greg Grant hybrid between Malvaviscus drummondii x Malvaviscus arboreus is a fantastic new color break in one of our favorite mallows. When mature, the deciduous clumps will reach 5' tall x 5' wide. The deer-resistant and hummingbird-favored clumps are adorned with rich green leaves that serve as a backdrop for the axillary flowers that are produced in abundance from midsummer until frost. The turban-like flowers, with their sex organs protruding far outside the petals, make for great conversation in the summer garden. The flowers on Malvaviscus 'Pam Puryear' are a peachy, flesh color instead of the typical bright orange-red.
