Create a Grand, Colorful Statement with Hollyhocks

HollyhocksHollyhocks, also known as Alcea, not only create bright, dependable color in the summer garden, but also provide many practical uses for your property. We love this garden classic and wanted to share its benefits with all of you.

Hollyhocks grow to be about 5’ and taller, making them perfect for creating a colorful backdrop in the border of your garden. Hollyhocks arealso great for planting in front of electrical panels and other unsightly views on your property.They also attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden and Hollyhocksmake for gorgeous cut bouquets. We’ve heard that the Hollyhock Charter’s Mix is Martha Stewart’s favorite, as she grows it for fall bouquets. It is also said that Hollyhock stems, once they die down in the fall, can be used as firewood.

Hollyhocks have been known and identified since the early 19th century, originally boasting large, double blooms that are almost fluffy-looking. Since then, botanists have hybridized the plant to have many different forms. We carry a large variety of Hollyhocks in bare root form, meaning as biennials they should bloom in the first season.If you’re looking to start Hollyhocks from seed,we carry Alcea rosea in seed form.

What are your favorite uses for Hollyhocks? Please share in the comments below or on our Facebook Page. Happy Gardening!

    Perennials along with smaller perennials- any help would be greatly appreciated. I have taken out azaleas that were in a bed under a tree in my front yard and need to put something in the bed. Azaleas were overpowering. We purchased the home and I had to get them out. Any ideas? My budget is tight. It is also a circle around a tree but it gets a good bit of sun. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
    Kind Regards,
    Stephanie

    I planted Hollyhock night watchman (nigra) between my vegetable and flower garden by the fence. I used seed and had to wait one year before I saw flowers, but it was worth the wait.

    I love mine also but every year I get I think they are sawfly larva on the leaves and it's no time before they are gone.
