This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately-fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Rounded buds open from the base of the sturdy, upright flowerspike to many-petalled white flowers, which have a slightly ruffled appearance. This hollyhock offers height and summer-long colour, and will help add structure in mixed planting schemes.
