Description
Everybody loves Hollyhocks--tall beauties that create tremendous color wherever they grow. They quickly create spires of flowers up to 5 feet.

These old-fashioned plants are famous for being biennial which means they bloom their second year from seed. But ours are already in their second season, so they're guaranteed to bloom this coming summer.

Hollyhocks are great for the back of the border, and also as a blooming screen for unsightly views or other things you'd like to hide with beautiful flowers all summer long.

          Comments about American Meadows Hollyhock Double Charters Mix, Hollyhock Mix:

          I bought 16 bare-root plants to hide my ugly fence in April. Hollyhocks take 2 years to mature to blossom. I was very surprised to see those tall stalks filled with beautiful flowers by the end of June. Hopefully by next June they will completely cover the fence. If not, I will order 16 more. I am very pleased. Thank you.

              I purchased these for my mother for her birthday and was very excited; however, when she received them, 2 were dead and one was on the way to a fast death. The others that survived did well and she was surprised that I remembered they were her fav flowers.

                Comments about American Meadows Hollyhock Double Charters Mix, Hollyhock Mix:

                I planted mine earlier this year and it grew about 5 feet tall with one stem, but I only got white flowers. I was expecting very colorful blooms. I am now seeing at the bottom more green leaves, so maybe it takes a couple of years.

                I got these last year so they havent bloomed yet! I can wait to see the blooms this summer! The foilage on these plants are huge! Bigger than my hand! So they do need a good amount of growing space. Everything I bought from american meadows grew! I did not have one dud! Instructions are easy to follow!

                      I am sorry that I can't be more positive. I assume it is due to our hard winter . . but only 3 of the 8 hollyhocks have pokes their heads up this year.

                      Thank you!

                          I planted 2 bags of 8 in full sun outside of my veggie garden and got real excited when the leaves popped out of the ground... but that was it. Never flowered.
