A summer party. Fresh out of the ground.

Beautiful summer bloomers? These colourful hollyhocks definitely are "Spring Celebrities". Bees and butterflies love them. You will receive the hollyhock as bare-root stock in sugar cane sacking. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. They are winter-hardy perennials. They can be planted at any time, provided that the ground is not frozen. The hollyhock begins flowering in summer. This will continue for months. They are real sun worshippers. Plant the hollyhock in a location with full sun. It can also be planted in the garden or in flower pots on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. It fits nicely into a bare area around the house or pavement too.

Planting

Hollyhock Alcea rosea is a real sun worshipper! A spot close to a sunny south facing wall or fence is ideal for this romantic, summer flowering plant. Well-drained, sandy soil will be perfect. Don’t forget to fertilise and don’t let the plants dry out. Recommended spacing for the young plants is approx. 50 cm apart.

Hollyhocks and climbing roses

Hollyhocks combine very well with other plants. Climbing roses grown alongside hollyhocks make a great partnership. Both varieties have the same requirements and blend together perfectly. Lavender in the vicinity also works well.

Care

The plants you receive from us will flower during the same year. The hollyhock is usually grown as a biennial which means that the plant dies after flowering. When the plant turns to a brownish colour in autumn, you can cut down the whole plant.

Self seeding hollyhocks

The seed pods are very decorative, leave them to ripen on the plant and they will easily self-seed. Or if you want to grow the hollyhocks in a different area, when the pods are dry collect the seed and store in a brown bag until they can be sown in June in a shady spot. In September, choose the best place in your garden for planting out. Protect from a severe frost in winter with a layer of fallen. The plants will bloom the following year from June to July. The flower colours are always a surprise!

Extra

The large flowers of our Hollyhocks are double. You'll receive a mixture of plants with different flower colours, ranging from red, yellow, dark pink, light pink to white. The tall, sturdy flower spikes of Hollyhock provide a strong, vertical accent in your garden. Its shape combines very nicely with the more flat shape of the pink coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) or the airy inflorescence of rue (Thalictrum Rochebrunianum).
