Hollyhocks (Alcea) are perhaps the definitive old-fashioned garden plant. They are the tall, stately flowers you admire in established gardens of older homes. The lofty spires on our Hollyhock plants are covered with large, frilled flowers in stunningly beautiful colors. Typically, biennial, allow the seeds to fall, and the clump will persist and return for years to come. They are Royal horticultural society prize winners. They bloom for weeks and make for a great back drop and tall garden dividers. Plant several packs to create that mass color effect. 24-plants will give you an 18 ft. to 27 ft. color wall in your garden. Hollyhock Nigra is included in our spring offering, due to its unique, blackish color that will add style, elegance, and mystery to your garden.
