This pom-pom style hollyhock offers delicate and lovely, fully double, pale-yellow flowers on sturdy 6' tall stems. A classic cottage garden flower and a go-to for creating a beautiful vertical element, this hollyhock grows quickly and branches out from the main stem. These flowering branches mean a steady supply of creamy 5” flowers much beloved by bees and hummingbirds. Given sun and good drainage, this hollyhock will prosper in a variety of locations, making it one of the most versatile of summer blooming perennials. It also makes a wonderful cut flower. And did you know that all parts of the hollyhock plant are edible? Try crystallizing the flowers for a tasty cake decoration or using them as one part of a tea infusion mix. Plant in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil. Cutting to the ground after flowering promotes fresh basal growth and possibly a second blooming. Treat any rust spots with organic copper fungicide.
