Classic cottage garden flower with silky blooms on 6-12 foot stems. Hollyhocks were traditionally planted around the outhouse so refined ladies wouldn’t have to ask where the “facilities” were!
To grow: Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last front. Transplant out when temperature stays above 10 °C, taking care not to break the long taproot. Plants often flower the same year if started early enough, and sometimes behave like perennials, flowering for a number of years.
