OUTHOUSE HOLLYHOCK - HEIRLOOM Alcea rosea
This classic variety has graced outbuildings on farmsteads for over a century. Single blooms of white, light pink, pinkish-red, magenta and burgundy. Years ago, refined ladies just looked for the hollyhocks and didn't have to ask where the outhouse was. My mom planted them out by our trash barrel. Blooms the second year in the North or first year in more moderate, long-seasoned climates. Self-seeding biennial, 6-9 feet tall. You may need to stake your hollyhocks if you get a lot of wind. I plant mine next to a fence.
