Anisodontea 'Tara's Wonder' (Cape Mallow) - A hybrid with similar circumstances as A. 'Tara's Pink', but most likely having A.anomola as one parent instead of A.scabrosa. This selection differs in having darker green leaves that are strongly lobed. The flowers have a deep rose-center with orchid striping radiating out towards the petal tips. The stock plant of 'Tara's Wonder' grew to over 6 feet tall. Grow in full sun with occasional summer watering. This plant was introduced by our nursery in 1994 but though it had striking colored flowers its coarse foliage and open form made it an awkward plant in the garden. It was discontinued in 1998. All plants that we have seen labeled Anisodontea 'Tara's Wonder' in nurseries and in public gardens have actually been Anisodontea 'Tara's Pink'The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Anisodontea 'Tara's Wonder'.
