Welcome - Hollyhock White
I love my white hollyhock's. They add such a nice contrast to all my rose and black hollyhocks. Grasshoppers seem to be my biggest pest. They don't like a spray of olive oil and dish soap.
This staple of old-fashioned cottage gardens is enjoying renewed interest. Hollyhocks add summer color, height and a restrained exuberance to the garden. Hollyhocks grow in most climates but have some requirements to do well. Learn to add this longtime favorite to your personal landscape.
Choose a sheltered, sunny, well-drained spot that lets seeds or plants grow undisturbed. Because hollyhocks grow four to eight feet high, the back of a flowerbed is best. Against a sunny wall, hollyhocks usually put on a splendid display. Enemies to good growth include: exposure to wind, soil with poor water runoff, consistent high humidity and poor air circulation. Unhappy hollyhocks are prone to rust, insect damage and stunted growth.
Plan to extend the life of perennial hollyhocks. Traditionally a short-lived perennial, hollyhocks benefit from flower stalks left intact long enough to reseed.
