Description

Height x Spread: 120cm x 60cm

Large pale yellow to cream hollyhock flowers are borne on tall elegant stems throughout the summer. This variety is resistant to hollyhock rust and has palmate fig-like leaves. 

Originating in Siberia, Alcea ficifolia is more vigorous than the common Hollyhock.  It is excellent choice for the middle to back of a mixed herbaceous or cottage garden border, where it will add vertical interest.  We like it combined with the dark purple, almost black form of Alcea rosea.  It thrives in a good free-draining soil and full sun.
