Old-fashioned blooms with modern vigor

What a joy—big, wide-open Hollyhock blooms in clear shades of white, yellow, red, purple, and pink with Happy Lights Hollyhock Mix. Single-flowered Hollyhocks are hard to find these days, and rust-resistant varieties harder still. But this improved mix (replacing Country Garden) not only gives you radiant color and plenty of it, but Happy Lights Hollyhock Mix is also a tall, rust-free, ready-to-bloom plant just made for the back of the border, the garage or barn wall, and other show-off spots. No wonder Happy Lights Hollyhock Mix won Europe's highest seed award.

Happy Lights Hollyhock Mix is a bold blend of white, pink, purple, red, and yellow blooms, each measuring about 3 inches apart and arising all along 5- to 7-foot stalks. This Hollyhock is no shrinking Violet—it shoots up tall and fast, with a long season of color-drenched blooms you can see from down the street. (Maybe they should have called it "Happy Searchlights" instead.)

Sow the seeds in February for blooms the first summer, or in July and August for next year. Happy Lights Hollyhock Mix thrives in any good garden soil (even dry ones) provided it's well-drained and exposed to full sunshine. Best of all, Happy Lights Hollyhock Mix is more resistant to rust than most any other Hollyhock. I would've said Country Garden couldn't be improved, but boy oh boy, Happy Lights has proved me wrong. You'll love the difference.

The blooms arise in early and midsummer, and appreciate a good heavy feeding both before and during bloomtime. Space Happy Lights Hollyhock plants about 2 to 3 feet apart for a solid line of brilliant color.
