Alcea rugosa
“Yellow Fig-Leaved Hollyhock”

Alcea rugosa “Fig-Leaved Hollyhock” Alcea rugosa “Fig-Leaved Hollyhock”

It’s amazing that these fig-leaved Hollyhocks are not more widely known & grown! Highly valuable for their vigor, reliability, long bloom & upright bushy habit (no stakes needed), they’re also far more rust resistant than common biennial Hollyhocks. Returning each Spring for five or more years, “Russian Hollyhock” makes an outstanding focal mass of upright spikes & truly lovely 4” soft yellow blooms Summer thru Fall. Fabulous background subject & spectacular when massed. Cut down to the ground in late Fall & provide some compost in Spring. Best in rich soil. Butterflies! To 5-6’ high & 2’ wide. Self-sows & attracts hummers!
