When this stately perennial/biennial plant starts to bloom, everyone is decidedly smitten. A very delicious color that is described as peach by one and apricot by another, a bloom shape that looks single to one and yet semi-double to another, this hollyhock is just too controversial! :-) Robust and vigorous grower, with large clumps of green basal foliage prior flowering. Hardy from zone 3 onwards. Full sun. 8 feet tall and wide, 3 feet wide. Moist, well-drained soil. Regular watering. Fresh seeds, harvested 07/2016.
Our website for actively-growing plants and cuttings (eclecticplants.ecrater.com) is now re-opened starting 6/2/2014. Cuttings of some Salvia species are available there.
