Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Hollyhocks are heirloom cottage garden perennials, well-loved for saucer-shaped blooms that attract butterflies and make a dramatic cut flower. Hollyhock 'Chater's Double Mixed' delivers architectural spires of ruffled, doubled blooms, which add height and structure to summer borders and provide a riot of colour. The edible flowers of Alcea rosea ‘Chater’s Doubles’ can even be added to salads for an attractive, tasty treat. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Culinary information: try crystallising the flowers for a tasty cake decoration, or use them to make a delicately flavoured syrup to use with puddings. For more details about edible flowers click here.
