Jet Black Hollyhock

100% of 100

With near-black flowers with just a hint of red, this variety was mentioned in 1629 and was planted by Thomas Jefferson in the gardens at Monticello. Use these to dress up the old white outhouse or the back of your flower bed. A must for historical gardens, this one is also known as "Nigra." You’ll love this richly-colored variety!
