Blooming from early to midsummer, the striking flowers are arranged all round the spike and bloom from the bottom up. An old garden favorite, Hollyhock is best when grown against a wall or fence or at the back of the border.

  • Easy to grow, Hollyhock is a welcomed addition to beds and borders and cottage gardens.
  • The flowers are attractive to hummingbirds, which hover near the blossoms, and to butterflies. Rabbit resistant.
