|Malope trifida provides excellent color for cool, coastal, summer flower beds. A natural in rocky, limestone soils. Each plant creates a small, shrub-like clump with deep purple-red, trumpet-shaped flowers, which bloom for more than 2 months. Their coloring goes well with white or lighter colored old roses. Also nice with Marguerites. Deadhead to prolong flowering and repeat seed sowing if needed for successive blooms.
