Alcea rosea annua ‘Spring Celebrities Purple’

Compact Hollyhock

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.030.730

Hollyhocks have been grown in gardens for centuries. This is a new compact strain that features bushy, dwarf plants that produce sturdy stems with an abundance of large double blooms. This selection features purple double flowers that will bloom during the summer and into the early fall. Plants usually act as short-lived perennials, but will re-seed themselves for many years. Rust can be a problem, especially in humid summer regions. Excellent for the border, especially when mass planted and in containers. Thrives in cool and sunny conditions. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds.
