Buy Alcea rosea 'Nigra' hollyhock (Althea): Bees love their flowers

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 and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Towering stems rise above the hairy, lobed leaves from early summer bearing richly coloured, near-black, single flowers, each with a yellow throat. A magnificent biennial or short-lived perennial , this hollyhock is made for a cottage garden setting.

  • Garden care: Water well during dry spells. All hollyhocks are prone to rust. To prevent this, either spray with Bordeaux Mixture (organic) or Murphy Tumbleblite (non-organic) before the trouble appears, and repeat a couple of times during the summer. In autumn cut the plants back to 15cm (6in) from the ground.

Do the black hollyhocks grow from 9cm pot to flower in the first year ? Thanks


Hello, We can never guarantee it, but provided the conditions are right, there is a good chance that they will go on to flower in their first year.
