This is a tall variety of hollyhock and creates very dark single petaled purple flowers.

These hybrid hollyhock are best started indoors in pots. Sow seeds on the surface of your potting mix and press the seed gently to make contact with your soil. Lightly dust with sand or vermiculite as they need light to germinate.

Keep slightly moist and try to keep between 70-75 degrees until germination. Once your seedlings have their second set of leaves slowly introduce to full sunlight until you transplant them into your garden. Keep cool as if these seeds get too warm they will not germinate.

These hollyhock are a bit different than other varieties as they are a perennial. In the fall after your first frost cut them about 6" above the ground.

A quick note about hollyhock and a fungus called Rust. Even though the this hollyhock is known for being Rust resistant, Hollyhock are very susceptible to Rust and we recommend you dust your garden area (after tilling your soil) prior to sowing your seeds with dustable sulfer, which you can get at any home improvement or garden center. In zone 7, in mid march about a month before our last frost, we dust them again just to make sure we don't have any problems with Rust during the summer.
