Plant Information

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 wanted Hollyhocks like my mom had on our farm when I was growing up...she now has the doubles but I wanted the old fashion singles.... Planted them in spring and they grew fast....but I didn't expect all of them to get buds to bloom their first year! They are loaded with flowers....not all have opened yet but I have a few white ones....several shades of pink and some even look ruffled. It was a new bed so they took it over.....lol truely beautiful and I'm so lucky they did so well the first year....wow! Hope I get more colors as most are various shares of pink but still I'm very happy....thank you!

      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!

        Comments about American Meadows Hollyhock Seeds:

        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.

          Comments about American Meadows Hollyhock Seeds:

          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.

          Q & A

          Plant With These:

          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).

          Find Your Planting Zone:
