Is it Rose Mallow? Giant 6″ Flowers…

IMG_6304

This perennial has enormous flowers. It is one of the foundation plantings here when we bought the house- I probably need another 1-2 years before I can get to any real gardening- but this plant has ENORMOUS flowers! Click on the photo to get a better look at the ruler.

Later this month the driveway is going to be widened, a retaining wall added to the side yard, and we plan to remove the lawn along the driveway and replace with a garden bed.
This autumn I will probably try to divide this monster plant and spread it around a bit.

I think it is called a Rose Mallow. Kind of cool.

I’ve got lots of boat project photos, including kevin’s new, awesome anchor windlass, now tested and approved. I wanted to get a post in to see if the new Widget for subscribing works!
