Hollyhock General Information

Hollyhock are perhaps the definitive old-fashioned garden plant. Flowering from late spring through summer. From the Spring Celebrities™ Series, this versatile Hollyhock is a multi-use plant that can be grown in large containers or planted in the landscape. Best selection for the coldest areas (zones 3 & 4), not for the gulf states. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Hollyhock Plant Care

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.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
