Alcea rosea ‘Creme de Cassis’


Hollyhock

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.030.820


Hollyhocks have been grown in gardens for centuries, their tall spikes of satiny, crepe-textured flowers making a fine display in mid-summer. Best at the back of a sunny border, with something in front to hide their bare lower stems. This delightful strain features single to double flowers of rich blackcurrant red, the petal edges fading to mauve and soft pink with a yellow centre. Plants usually act as short-lived perennials, but will re-seed themselves for many years. Rust is often a problem, particularly in humid summer regions. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds.
