Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days
Black Hollyhock was described as early as 1629 by John Parkinson as being "of a darke red like black blood," an apt description for the large single flowers that grace this plant in June and July. This biennial or short-lived perennial will form large rosettes of round, hairy leaves by autumn, and will bloom the following summer.

Sow seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost date at 70°F. Transplant to 3” pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after last frost. Approximately 15-20 seeds per packet.

Exposure Planting Method Planting Depth Plant Spacing Size at Maturity Zone
Full Sun to Part Shade Transplant 1/8” 2-3’ apart 4-8’ 3-8

Line Drawing from Garden Flowers Coloring Book by Stefen Bernath (1975) zone3, zone4, zone5, zone6, zone7, zone8
