Hollyhock General Information:

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. Best selection for the coldest areas (zones 3 & 4), not for the gulf states.

Hollyhock Plant Care:

Truly a perennial, will bloom the first year from seed. Allow to self sow to ensure future plants. 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. Cut plants back to 8" after blooming.
