Nigra Alcea Rosea

25 seeds


These can be planted in either spring or fall. Fall planting gives you a better chance of getting blooms the first year. Spring planting provides flowers the second year.

Most little girls who grew up with these know about the hollyhock "doll making." It is one of the cutest things ever. You take a bud and peel the green off and stick that in the upside down portion of an opened bloom. (see photos)

Please note that this is for black hollyhocks. Some of the photos of the dolls are of other colors.

Stratifying by planting in late fall for a spring emergence or stratifying in your refrigerator for 30 days (fold seeds into a moist paper towel and then a sealed ziploc bag and place in your refrigerator) will greatly increase germination.

Hollyhocks grow to an impressive 5-8 feet tall with multiple blooms on each stalk. Ideal germination temperatures should be between 60 and 70 degrees.

Biennial that is a prolific seed producer, which makes them come back year after year. Allow the plants to self-seed
