Malope trifida – Pink ‘Vulcan’


Malope trifida – ‘Vulcan’

These deep pink mallow type flowers have satin-like petals in pure white or a deep magenta pink with a green centre. Fresh apple green foliage on tall stems which are both long in flower and in the vase. One of my must haves for wedding work as it is useful and large scale and installation work.
