Hollyhock in Mixed Colours - Plant
Hollyhocks are real sun worshippers! A spot close to a sunny south facing wall or fence is ideal for this romantic, summer flowering plant. Well-drained, sandy soil will be perfect. Don’t forget to fertiliser and don’t let the plants dry out. Recommended spacing for the young plants is approx. 50 cm apart.Hollyhocks and climbing roses
Hollyhocks combined with other plants. Climbing roses grown alongside hollyhocks make a great partnership. Both varieties have the same requirements and blend together perfectly. Lavender in the vicinity also works well.
The stunning, large flowers of our Hollyhocks are double. You'll receive a mixture of plants with colours varying from red, yellow, dark pink, light pink to white. The tall, sturdy flower spikes provide a strong, vertical accent in your garden. The shape combines perfectly with the Echinacea Purpurea which has a flatter shape or even the airy inflorescence of Thalictrum Rochebrunianum.
The wonderful thing about Hollyhocks is that they look beautiful in the most simplest spots of the garden. Hollyhock is also called Althaea rosea.
The plants you receive from us will flower during the same year. The Hollyhock is usually grown as a biennial which means that the plant dies after flowering. When the plant turns to a brownish colour in autumn, you can cut down the whole plant.Self seeding hollyhocks
The seed pods are very decorative, leave them to ripen and when the pod looks dry the seeds can be used for sowing. Sow the seeds in June in a shady spot. In September, choose the best place in your garden for planting out. Protect from a severe frost in winter with a layer of fallen. The plants will bloom the following year from June to July. The flower colours are always a surprise!
