    The soft apricot, semi-double flowers of this annual hollyhock are larger than average, and they also have a soft lemon blush to the petals. This makes them a showy addition to the summer border, where they will mix easily with richer pinks, as well as most shades of purple and even yellow.

  • Garden care: Water well during dry spells. Remove and replace after they have died back.
