Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ALCEA( SUMMER CARNIVAL SERIES)
Hollyhock, Summer Carnival Hollyhock
Hollyhocks in the Summer Carnival Series are more compact than other selections. In summer they bear strong leafy flower stalks lined with showy double flowers rising from a coarse rosette of leaves. Their blooms may be red, pink, yellow, white or purple, depending on the cultivar, and unlike other hollyhocks, these 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.
