Althaea rosea
Syn. Alcea
Hollyhock

This biennial (flowers 2nd year), is popular for the tall, (up to 2 mtrs) stately spires of cup-like flowers, which appear in summer and early autumn.
They are a superb sight, in shades of pink, mid-pink, white and even a black one.

Traditionally grown in cottage gardens where they attract the butterflies and bees.

These fully hardy plants, prefer sun, average, free-draining soil and frequent watering in dry weather.
They need shelter from the wind, so it is best to stake them in exposed positions.

Hollyhocks are susceptible to rust, so are often grown as annuals to avoid a build-up of this problem.
To prevent rust, remove the affected leaves and spray with fungicide.

Propagate by seed, sown directly in the ground, in summer or spring, where the plants are to grow.

This auction is for approx. 30 seeds.

I can post anywhere in New Zealand for $1.50.
Pick up welcome.
