Alcea Halo Lavender, Hollyhock

Alcea Halo Lavender, Hollyhock

From England comes Halo Lavender Hollyhock, Alcea rosea. Hybridized over many years, Halo Lavender was selected for its huge, velvety lavender flowers with pink center halos. Plants form bushy clumps of crinkled foliage with tall spikes carrying large, colorful blossoms in summer. Unlike other Hollyhocks that are short lived, Halo Lavender Hollyhock is truly perennial. Plants grow 5-6′ tall, 24″ wide and prefers full sun. Butterflies and hummingbirds adore it.

From the breeding work of famed English outfit Thompson & Morgan comes the Halo series of hollyhocks that was 16 years in the making. These varieties were selected and hybridized over many generations for their large, single, bicolor flowers. Each displays a prominent, contrasting lighter or darker colored halo in the center of the flower. Unlike other hollyhocks that are biennial, these are true perennials.
