Hollyhock Spring Celebrities Mix
Tolerant of cold and drought, these lovely blooms bring in the butterflies!
These blooms are 2½ to 3 inches wide, with an outer layer of wide, flat petals topped by a ruffled, frilly center. The petals are slightly notched, creating a pleated look at the center of the flower, as if a bright fan decorated each bloom. Fade-proof and utterly beautiful, these are flowers to be enjoyed up close! In this mix you receive carmine rose, crimson, purple, lemon, white, and pink.
The flowers begin in late spring in most climates, continuing freely into midsummer. Butterflies and bees flock to their center, further increasing the beauty of the display. And because this plant reaches only 24 to 28 inches and the flowering stems are quite stout and strong, you need never worry about staking or tying the blooms! What a joy -- a Hollyhock that can stand alone, even at the height of the season!
Just 16 to 18 inches wide, Spring Celebrities fit nicely into an 8- or 10-inch pot, and are spectacular at the front of the sunny bed or border. Like all Hollyhocks, they appreciate very rich, well-drained soil, so prepare the planting area well or use a high-quality potting mix in containers. Feed them throughout the season for more blooms, but don't worry if the weather turns a bit dry -- once established, Spring Celebrities are wonderfully drought-tolerant. They don't mind cold weather either!
Spring Celebrities are available in 6 luscious colors and an eye-popping mix. Create your own design, fill the garden and vase, but whatever you do, DO try this exciting new Hollyhock! We're convinced you will never want your garden without it again! Zones 5-9. Pkt is 10 seeds.
