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.
