The beautiful fully double apricot blooms are a standout in any garden - from the old school cottage garden to the modern perennial border. While hollyhock will grow nicely in some shade, full sun is essential for the best bloom. Biennial hardy to Zone 4.
How To Grow
110 seeds/gram. Seed can be started indoors in a soil-less mix in March. Germinate at 18 C (65 F) for 21-28 days then grow on under lights before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site in the garden. Avoid higher temperatures as it affects germination success. Direct outdoor sowings can be done May to late August. Space mature plants 75 cm (30") apart in the garden.
