HOLLYHOCK SEEDS

Alcea rosea, A. ficifolia, A. rugosa, A. pallida

32 Hollyhock Seed Varieties. Flowers Double and Single.

Hollyhocks are sturdy, stately, old fashioned plants that flower over a long summer season. They attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Plants are biennials or short-lived perennials and will usually reseed and return year after year. Winter hardy to zone 3.

DOUBLE FLOWERED
Hollyhock Seeds

Alcea rosea

Large, double, flattened, peony shaped flowers. We are pleased to offer the following excellent, often seldom seen varieties.

CHATER'S DOUBLE SERIES Hollyhock Seeds

Alcea rosea

William Chater (1802-1885) through his Saffron Walden Nursery in England revolutionized the growing of hollyhocks, with the release of his 1847 seed catalog. Here was offered for the first time, named varieties of reliably double hollyhock flowers of uncommon size and substance. They bloomed in colors not previously seen.

From the mid 1840s to the early 1870s Chater's efforts in breeding double flowered hollyhocks were so completely extraordinary, the level of his accomplishment so high, the quality of the double hollyhocks Chater created has yet to be equaled.

I count the Chater's series as my favorite hollyhocks. While average garden height is 5-6 feet, many is the summer I have seen their long, colorful flowering stems extend well beyond the height of our 6 foot fence. When you give them loads of water and nutrients, and stake them firmly, growing 10-12 foot tall giants is possible.

How to Plant HOLLYHOCK Seeds

Sow hollyhock seeds in 2 inch pots or cell packs, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 70-75° F., germination is in 14-28 days. Can direct sow hollyhock seeds into prepared seed beds in groups of 3-4 seeds, spaced 2-3 feet apart. Thin to strongest plant. See Starting Your Seeds for more information.
Comments: Full sun; part sun in hottest climates. Hollyhock plants perform best in fertile soil with regular moisture. Irrigate from below and provide good air circulation. True perennial hollyhocks noted in description; most are biennials, or short-lived perennials. Many hollyhocks flower the first season when started early. After flowering, cut back plants hard, to within a few inches of the ground. Continue to water and fertilize; plants repeat bloom in late summer and fall. Single flower hollyhocks attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Hollyhock plants often self sow.
