Breeding of this single color alcea series began back in 1992, the developer felt it was important to develop consistent, stable, single colors that no one else was offering at the time. Now you can have a planting of single color hollyhocks to accent a wall or back of a perennial border that is easy to grow and will be there for several years to come because these hollyhocks are perennial not biennial like other hollyhocks and it will flower during the first season of growth.
