Hollyhock in Mixed Colours - Plant
Hollyhocks are real sun worshippers! An area such as 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.Hollyhock combines well with Climbing Roses
Hollyhocks next to climbing roses works well. Both varieties have the same requirements and blend together perfectly. Plus with lavender in the vicinity you will have a beautiful result.
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 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
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. Cover in winter with a layer of fallen leaves to protect from frost. The plants will bloom the following year from June to July.
