Description

(48-72" tall (4-6 feet) x 12-24" wide) 'Crème De Cassis' Hollyhock is a knockout. Growing up to 6 feet, each flower stem is arrayed with big (up to 4) blooms in raspberry and white. You'll have the semi-doubles with a fluffy center, and then the singles, which feature a bright yellow center, all on the same plant.

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. 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.
