Hollyhock Mix catches the delight of the antiquated house garden. Hollyhocks are sturdy and stately, old-fashioned plants. They bloom over a long summer season. Flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Plants will usually reseed and return year after year.

Each blossom is 3 to 5 inches wide, with a striking yellow community and a totally stunning shading—brights and pastels just as profound gem tones. They emerge most intensely in late-spring on thick, strong 4-to 6-foot stems, drawing in hummingbirds by the dozen. It is particularly appealing to Checkered Skippers and the Common Hairstreak, going about as a host plant where they lay their eggs. In the north, the blossoms might well proceed with the entire season.

Hollyhock Mix is a striking mix of white, pink, purple, red, black, double, and yellow blossoms, each estimating around 2-3 inches separated and emerging from the beginning 5-to 7-foot stalks. This Hollyhock is no contracting Violet—it shoots up tall and quick, with a long period of shading-soaked sprouts you can see from down the road.

PLANTING: Plant the seeds in February for blossoms the primary summer, or in July and August for the following year. Cheerful Lights Hollyhock Mix flourishes in any great nursery soil (even dry ones) if it's very much depleted and presented to full daylight. Direct sow seeds in the Summer, Fall, Spring. Late Summer is my preference for sowing Hollyhock seeds. Direct sow seeds in full sun with consistent moisture.

Slightly cover seeds. Keep soil warm and moist. Prevent seeds from drying out during germination. Cold, soggy soil will rot seeds. Hollyhocks will bloom in the second year and beyond. Plants are biennials or short-lived perennials. The average garden height is 5-7 ft. Grown in rich soil with plenty of water, plants can reach a whopping 10-12 ft. tall.

Make certain to leave the keep-going blossoms on the plant even after the petals fall, for they will do your reseeding for you, and you'll be compensated with a lot of new plants come spring.
