Product Details

Product Details
We heard about this stunning variety for years before stumbling on it at the Montreal Botanic Garden. The form is the classic single Hollyhock, but the color is a maroon so deep it looks black. It makes a riveting presence in the garden, providing a dark backdrop for soft shades and blending perfectly with bolder hues.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

They Did Not Bloom at all

Farmer Brown from Rochester, New York 14618

Nigra Hollyhocks are hard to find. We had them years ago, and gave them all away at the end of the season to friends.

We were so disappointed to just get leaves this year.

Fabulous Almost Black Flowers

Violet Beck from Atlanta, GA

This plant is tall and thin so it should be planted with other plants around it. The flowers are great and bloom for a long time. It seems hardy.

Latin Name Pronunciation: al-see'uh 

Prefers full sun (or partial shade in the South) and moist but well-drained soil with near-neutral pH. May require staking. Rust, a fungus that appears as brown spotting on the leaves, can sometimes be a problem. Combat with applications of sulfur begun early in the season. Red spider mites and caterpillars often plague Hollyhocks grown in the South (A. rugosa is a notable exception).
