What are the pros? Bees seem to really love them!

What are the cons? Wish there were more colors!

Review:

This was the first time I've been successful with hollyhocks. I planted them as biennials. They're very beautiful, and the bees love them! I assumed there would be a little more color variation in the mix, but the only colors I got were the two pictured in the description. Seed is easy to save, definitely planting again! If you want to see them growing in my garden - you can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukHjGK1voPY

What are the pros? takes heat, pretty foliage

What are the cons? takes a long time to bloom

Review:

These germinated well for me. One actually bloomed the first season however the rest are setting blooms this year. They performed quite well in the dry 100F temps of late spring/early summer as well as the hot, humid monsoon season.

Review:

Hollyhocks are the quintessential cottage garden flower, and of all the kinds out there, Indian Spring Mix is my favorite. They received an All America award in 1939, and are just as good today. What I especially like about them is that they have some variation not just in color, but in flower form as well. Some are single, some semi-double. Some have smooth edges and others have "pinked" (raggedy) edges. I started 7 plants last summer. Five of them are already blooming (spring has definitely arrived in San Diego!), and the others are getting ready. The colors range from a very pale pink, through medium pinks, to a pinky-red. Each has a lighter center. They add nice height to the garden. If you live in a windy area, plant them against a fence or wall to help them stay upright. I have mine against a white picket fence with a pink rose growing on it. The hollyhocks make a lovely color echo with the rose.

Review:

These were easy to start from seed and they are gorgeous! Mostly light colored, bordering on white. They bloomed the first year, and time will tell if they will come back next year! Love them!
