Hollyhocks have been a staple of cottage gardens forever, so who better than an English breeder to develop an improved variety? The result a of 16-year quest by Thompson & Morgan, 'Halo Pink' has large flowers of soft pink, each brightened by a dark pink halo in the center.
The common Hollyhock is one of the most desirable garden plants nature ever invented. Alcea should be planted in full sun in clumps close to every New England house and, if placed in a protected location, need not be staked. With the exception of our Perennial Singles, the varieties we offer are officially biennials, but we find that under favorable conditions they will persist for a number of years. (In the South, Hollyhocks are best treated as biennials -- planted in fall for bloom the following spring.) Flowering begins in June here and continues into August. Plants prefer average, well-drained soil.
