Hollyhock 'Crème de Cassis' is a particularly mouth-watering variety, bearing veined flowers in juicy blackcurrant that fade to paler berry shades around the edges. Each vertical stem bears an attractive mixture of double, semi double and single blooms. As well as being a cottage garden essential, bringing height and stature to the back of perennial borders, hollyhocks made handsome cut flowers for summer bouquets and their nectar-rich blooms are a magnet for butterflies. 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.
