Gorgeous Results

I planted 3 of these in fall of 2016. There was terrible rain this spring and the area where these were planted sat in some water for a day - I thought all was lost. But they have grown to 6 feet tall - all 3 have numerous blooms. Pale pink, yellow and peach. Just gorgeous. I could fill my garden with these beauties.

Robust first year report here

We used to live in Vermont but now live in Ohio. This was like bringing a little bit of Vermont with us to Ohio since these originated in Vermont. Planted three Fall of 2016 and they were robust & fast growing and made it fine through a relatively mild winter with mininmal mulching. Planted in full sun on the South and Southwest side of the house. June 2017 now are three feet tall with numerous flower buds but no flowers yet. I hope we get the variety of flower color shown in the photo in the catalog here gave only 4 stars because I cannot describe any flowers as of yet.

The best hollyhock you will find!

Bought a few lof these last summer. Plants are very healthy, and already forming buds to my surprise! Foliage is big and chartreuse green in colour. I have several hollyhocks that I purchased from other nurseries and they still under 20'' and the ones I bought from Park Seed-are over 1'
