Great Plant- Off Color Review by Steph - Des Plaines, IL
Posted on 2014-07-10 22:12:18

This plant grows very well and looks fantastic. The color however is not a "ruby red" as described, but rather halfway between lilac and fuchsia. I have it in partial shade and it is doing well.

These hollyhocks are easy to grow however the blooms were mauve in color, not red as pictured. If color is not a problem for you than it is a good purchase.

flowers are purple, not red Review by Rose Weiss - Brookings, OR

I bought 5 of these last year. They weren't happy to be packed and shipped, but once they got established, they've grown well, blooming last summer and bearing lots of flower buds so far this summer. I was a bit disappointed that the flowers aren't red at all - they're purple. Still pretty, but not the color I had in mind for their placement.

Vibrant and eye catching, the Red Mini Hollyhock brings an exuberant presence to any garden, with its best growth in cool, moist climates. It makes quite a showy impression, with its 1" blooms ranging from reddish-purple to deep rose red. This rapidly growing perennial flower blooms in early to mid-summer, with a profusion of blossoms climbing each narrow stalk. This hybrid of the North American native checkerbloom will tolerate a wide range of soils, but dislikes being waterlogged, so plant in a well-drained area receiving full to partial sun. It is hardy in zones 3 – 9 and achieves its best growth in cool, moist climates. An exceptional candidate for border plantings, this mini hollyhock grows to the perfect height of 30 – 32" and rarely requires staking. For a striking centerpiece, plant these mini hollyhocks in groups. This ruby beauty is known for its long blooming time and its attractiveness to butterflies, enticing them to your garden or landscape for a beautiful atmosphere and added charm. The red hollyhock can also be cut back after flowering to encourage a second bloom. This modern version of an old-fashioned favorite is sure to make its presence known with a flourishing display of resplendent color.
