A member of the outstanding Halo series of Hollyhocks, Alcea. From the breeding work of  the world renown British seed company Thompson & Morgan comes this 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. Members of this series form a bushy clump of rugose green foliage with tall spikes carrying large, colorful blossoms in early to midsummer. They are hardy perennials.  

Plant in full sun. Add a shovel full or two of organic matter when planting. Mulch. For best results keep well watered, especially when plants are setting up buds and blooming.
