First year blooming, with double, semi-double and singles on the same stem. Deep wine colored blooms with pink fringe make this Hollyhock a special selection for the sunny perennial garden. Best at the back of a sunny border. Spring shipping only.
Hollyhock are perhaps the definitive old-fashioned garden plant. Flowering from late spring through summer, these are the tall stately flowers you looked up to in your grandmother's garden. Rust can be a problem in high humidity. Best selection for the coldest areas (zones 3 & 4), not for the gulf states.
Although biennial, allow seeds to fall and the clump will persist for many many years. May need staking. Rust (little orange dots on the leaves) can be a problem in high humidity and can be treated with a copper based fungicide.
