Lavatera thuringiaca is showy and occasionally cultivated as a garden ornamental. There are only a few records of the species as escaped or naturalized in North America. Old reports have indicated its presence in New Brunswick and Ontario based on escapes from cultivation that did not become established; there was also an apparently erroneous report from Quebec.
