Product Overview

Alcea species

This cottage garden charmer is a stunning backdrop in the flowerbed and makes an edible garnish! Long bloom period.

Once called "outhouse flowers", stunning hollyhocks were grown around outhouses because hollyhocks were tall enough to cover them, but also a signal to guests where they were located. This hollyhock has a long bloom period, too! Fairly drought tolerant but performs best with ample moisture and rich soil; otherwise, practically care-free!

Variety Info

2"–4", single, pink, red, burgundy, or white flowers, some with contrasting centers
