Everybody loves Hollyhocks--tall beauties that create tremendous color wherever they grow. They quickly create spires of flowers up to 5 or 6 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 Peaches n Dreams:

        I bought TEN of these and lined them against a white fence in my backyard - was SO excited to see tall, peach fluffiness all summer and then (fingers crossed) each year after that. It never happened. I don't think the greenery passed 1-2 feet and then nothing progressed. This was really sad for me, as other people mentioned how easy hollyhocks are to grow and often reseed themselves. I had seen multiple neighbors with hollyhocks, which is why I bought them in the first place - I knew they'd grow well in our area. At least I thought they would... :(

          I am using these to hide the side foundation of the house. They were very new last year so they didn't do much. This spring they are already up about a foot. One of the 3 died.

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
