Hollyhocks (Alcea Rosea) are classic garden plants, with beautiful tall large flowering spires. Hollyhocks have been a favourite cottage garden plant for years and add a vertical element to the garden, adding much needed interest. Hollyhocks look stunning planted against fences or planted at the back of your flower border, giving your garden a touch of whimsy and romance. Although hollyhocks are short-lived perennials, flowering for only a couple of years, they self-seed easily. Hollyhock seedlings are easy to recognise and replant. Establishing themselves in the first year and flowering the next.
