Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ALCEA 'Summer Carnival Red Shades'( SUMMER CARNIVAL SERIES)
Hollyhock, Summer Carnival Red Shades Hollyhock
This compact hollyhock bears beautiful spikes of double flowers in rich red tones. In spring, ‘Summer Carnival Red Shades’ produces a coarse rosette of leaves. In summer strong, leafy flower stalks are produced. These are lined with striking pom pon-like flowers in rich shades of red. Unlike other hollyhocks, members of the Summer Carnival Series flower in the first year from seed.
Hollyhocks thrive in full sun and moderately fertile soil with good drainage. They make an excellent addition to cottage gardens, mixed borders or large containers and are highly susceptible to powdery mildew and Japanese beetle predation.
