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? 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!

Review:

I planted this hollyhock about 3 years ago and it's been going strong ever since. It flowers all summer and the bees and birds love it! The dark velvety flowers are a fantastic backdrop to all the other colors in the garden. I've never seen anyone else with this color!
