"Turkish Hollyhock"

Alcea pallida Turkish Hollyhock

Rare and charming! Native to Greece, Turkey and the Balkan Peninsula, “Turkish Hollyhock” brings on the smiles with its sweet scalloped 4” blooms, lovely orchid color and lime green centers. In rich loamy soil it’s base-branching with multiple stalks to 5’ tall x 4’ around. Along with Alcea rugosa (online), it’s the most rust resistant and blooms 1st year from late Spring thru Summer. Cut back to the base in Fall. Hummers and butterflies. Self-sows!
