'Halo Candy'

Hollyhock Alcea rosea Halo Candy

5” cotton candy flowers surround yummy black-cherry eyes – swoon! Our newest member of the ‘Halo’ series Hollyhocks, these are PERENNIAL and rust resistant. What’s more, instead of one or two stalks you get 3-5 or more simultaneously blooming stalks to only 5-8’ tall, which makes them extra exciting and manageable in the garden, I think. Cut stalks back when bloomed out and they’ll re-bloom if you grow them in good composty soil, which you should surely do. Cut back to ground in Fall. Butterflies and hummers!
