About Malop Seeds - Vulcan

Malope trifida

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed

Swift blooming and with an extended flowering period, Vulcan Malope dazzles with its trumpet-shaped blooms adorned with large, glossy petals that shimmer in the sunlight. Each petal, striped and narrowing at the base, forms a distinct, star-shaped pattern, revealing the vibrant green calyx beneath. Sporting sizable, cup-shaped blossoms with a one-inch throat, Vulcan boasts excellent branching, resulting in mid-height, bushy plants adorned with numerous dark rose blooms. Easy to cultivate, this variety is ideal for informal bouquets, as cutting the flowers promotes re-blooming. A splendid addition to any cottage garden.
