6x Hollyhock - Mix - Bare rooted

Alcea rosea
Cheerful summer blooms
Are you a fan of summer blooms? So are we! The hollyhock mix (Alcea rosea) contains different cheery colours to brighten up our garden or balcony in the summer. A colourful bee and butterfly magnet. You will receive the hollyhocks bare-rooted in environmentally friendly sugar cane sacking. 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. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. These are winter-hardy perennials, so they return every year. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Hollyhocks are real sun worshippers. They should be planted in full sun. The soil should be kept slightly damp. It's best to give them extra water during dry periods.

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.


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.


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).
