Description
These are the sometimes hard-to-find old barnyard favorites, the singles. Many people prefer them over the fluffy powder-puff-like doubles now so popular in gardens. With very showy colors, these old plants make a big show used in a meadow or as a screen. They are biennial, so bloom their second year.

              Comments about American Meadows Hollyhock Seeds:

              I love Hollyhocks and these grew and bloomed perfectly. I even had one precocious plant bloom the first year. My only complaint is that the Japanese Beetles love them, so they look pretty for about a week after blooming until the Beetles swarm in and eat them. I haven't tried any means of pest control, but will have to if I decide to grow these again. The beetles leave all of the other plants alone, then once they eat the hollyhocks they disappear. so I guess if you wanted to protect your other plants you could use the hollyhocks as a decoy. haha!

                      I live in the High Desert area of California and have seen plenty of Holly Hocks growing in my neighborhood to over 6feet. So far my seeds have no more that 6 inches of growth! They have plenty of water and light and were planted with Miracle grow soil added to my own. I wasn't expecting blooms this year but I wonder if I will get any next year at this rate.

                        These hollyhock seeds were extremely healthy, all came up the first year. Even after a severely cold winter for our area, they have popped their heads out once again! I can't wait to see their beautiful blooms this year for the first time.
                        Thank you American Meadows for giving back to me, my Grandma's favorite garden flower.
