Hollyhock
Alcea 'Halo Blossom'

Hollyhock Alcea Halo Blossom Hollyhock Alcea Halo Blossom

How sweet and poetic! ‘Halo Blossom’ brings a little romance to any garden with its 4” pure white blossoms encircling a showy, deep crimson eye. Numerous simultaneous bloom spikes 5-8’ tall lift the eye all Summer, making your garden look complete. Unlike the familiar (biennial) single stemmed Alcea rosea, these ‘Halo’ hybrids live for years, blooming Summer thru Fall and best of all, present 5-10 bloom spikes at a time! Much fuller in appearance, with those telltale fig-like leaves, they are far more robust and definitely more rust resistant. Inviting to butterflies and lots of oohs and aahs! Drought tolerant, but best in rich soil with average water. Do cut Hollyhocks down to 3” tall in Winter.
