UniqueReview by S. V. - Salisbury, NC Posted on 2013-07-04 12:23:37
Plant is beautiful. Too bad that it does not like central NC due to extreme humidity, this plant suffered bad hollyhock rust. Would look fantastic in dryer zones! Plant was shipped healthy just did not like our weather :(
Flowers the 2nd yearReview by Marcine - Firestone, CO Posted on 2012-08-03 00:42:10
These flowers have the coolest stripe feature and are adorable when in full bloom. Mine grow about 3' high and get blooms all along the length of the stems. Once the blooms die, cut back the dead stems and collect the seeds as they don't look too good after that. My sister in MO has some and they were done blooming in June but I've seen mine bloom longer - cutting them back may help. When growing from seed, mine don't bloom until the second year.
