Product Overview

Alcea rosea

Towers of edible dark blossoms are a wicked addition to the back of the flower border or a cottage garden.

From a distance, the dark color of The Watchman is as black as the moonless night sky, but on closer inspection you can see its rich, purplish burgundy cast. Seductive towers of flowers for bees and butterflies make an excellent backdrop for pink, red, yellow, or white flowers. Fairly drought tolerant but performs best with ample moisture.

Variety Info

2"–4", deep burgundy (almost black) flowers

Sowing Inside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, or 2 months before your average first fall frost date.
