The Hollyhock is a real sun worshipper. An area such as a sunny south wall or fence is ideal for this romantic, summer flowering plant. Well-drained, sandy soil is excellent. Be sure to provide enough fertilizer and prevent the soil from drying out. Plant the young plants about 50 cm apart.

Hollyhock combines well with Climbing Roses

This plant combines well with other plants. Roses grow well in the same area and make a great partner. Decorate your sunny south wall or fence with Climbing Roses and Hollyhocks. This plant can also be successfully combined with lavender.

The large flowers of our Hollyhocks are double. You'll receive a mixture of plants with different coloured flowers. The flower colour ranges from red, yellow, dark pink, light pink to white. The tall, sturdy flower spikes of Hollyhock provide a strong, vertical accent in your garden. Its shape combines very nicely with the more flat shape of Echinacea Purpurea or airy inflorescence of Thalictrum Rochebrunianum.

The wonderful thing about Hollyhocks is that they look beautiful in the most simple areas of the garden.

The plants you receive from us will bloom during the same year. Hollyhock is a biennial which means that the plant dies after flowering. When the plant turns to a brownish colour in autumn, you can cut the whole plant.

Hollyhocks are self-sown

Leave the seeds in their decorative seed pods to ripen to create new hollyhock seeds. Sow the seeds in June in a shady spot. In September, choose the best place in your garden for planting. Cover the plant in winter with some fallen leaves to protect from frost. The plants will bloom the following year from June to July. The colour of its flowers is always a surprise!
