The tall flower spikes gradually open from bottom to top, giving a long-lasting flowering period. This magnificent hardy perennial is ideal for a cottage garden scheme and can be cut for summer flower arrangements. Height: 180cm (71"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant out Hollyhocks in sunny borders in fertile, well drained soil. Choose a position that is sheltered from strong winds. Space hollyhock plants at least 60cm (24") apart to improve air circulation and help prevent hollyhock rust.
Feed and water regularly until hollyhocks are fully established. Support their tall stems with bamboo canes as the flower spikes develop. In autumn, cut back the old foliage and faded hollyhock flower stems, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant.
