Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ALCEA rosea 'Powderpuff Mix'
Hollyhock, Powderpuff Mix Hollyhock
Powderpuff mix hollyhocks are tall, short-lived, herbaceous perennials that originate from western Asia. In summer, rosettes of characteristically rough, hairy leaves give rise to tall, leafy stalks lined with show-stopping, fully double, powderpuff-like blooms of pink, white, apricot rose-red and yellow that are attractive to butterflies and bees. Hollyhocks thrive in moderately fertile, well drained soil and flower best in full sun. They are great old-fashioned garden flowers that make an excellent addition to large cottage gardens and mixed borders. Plants require staking, and are highly susceptible to powdery mildew and Japanese beetle predation.
