28. Common Mallow
(Malva sylvestris L.)

28. Common Mallow

At midsummer, when in full bloom, the mallow is a handsome and showy plant, common by the roadsides in the south of England. The leaves at the base are almost round, with slight lobes. Those on the stem are more distinctly lobed. The flowers are mauve with slightly darker stripes, each having five separate petals, notched at the tips. They average about an inch and a half across.
