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 our library and online research as well as observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Anisodontea 'Tara's Wonder'.
