This variety was mentioned in 1629 and was planted in the gardens at Monticello by Thomas Jefferson. This traditional variety is shockingly beautiful with its near-black flowers and just a hint of red. Gorgeous planted out by the old white outhouse or in the back of your flower bed. A must for historical gardens. You'll love this richly-colored variety.

What are the pros? Hardy & Stunning

What are the cons? Insects love eating the leaves

Review:

I planted these in June 2015, It took less than a week to notice seedlings. In just a few months, a large bushy, very green plant with large leaves thrived in drought conditions. In Spring 2016, It shot up three 7' stalks from the center of the plant that contained over 25 buds that opened into midnight black, silky flowers that are so stunning they will stop you in your tracks. I found out that once the flowers fell off, You can use the petals for dye and the dried up pods left on the stalk, contain hundreds of seeds. To sum it up, this amazing plant produces beauty, dye, hundreds of seeds, and is hardy in hot or cold conditions. Why would you not buy this seed?

What are the pros? The Color of the Flowers!

What are the cons? Nothing At All!

Review:

This is the most magnificent hollyhock in the world! They are smashing! A tall and lovely plant with uniquely colored flowers. Do try to grow these! Don't worry of rust attacks your hollyhocks, prune out affected leaves every few days. Do not get water on the plants, rather water them at ground level. The tops of the plants, where the flowers will be are not as affected by rust if properly cared for. This hollyhock is simply splendid!

What are the pros? Huge plentiful jet black bloom

What are the cons? May need support blooms heavy

Review:

OMG, this plant in bloom is a show stopper. Some of the spikes were over 7 feet tall and loaded with enormus beautiful jet blact to purpleish black blooms. It's so easy to grow, just poke the seeds in the ground and forget about them. But keep in mind it won't come up til the following year but wow is it worth the wait. I recc. getting some tall hefty support rods though. The spikes get so heavily ladened with flowers it is easy to be damaged by stiff winds.

What are the pros? Didn't need attention

What are the cons? none.

Review:

I foolishly didn't realize hollyhocks were biennial, and thought the seeds I planted last year hadn't germinated! When the leaves came up last year, I thought my three year old had planted a pumpkin in my flower bed because the leaves are so similar to a squash. This year the leaves started, then the stalks and I was shocked when the beautiful black flowers opened. Talk about low effort, these took care of themselves. I can't wait to collect the seeds after the gorgeous blooms fade. Thanks for a true winner!
