ALCEA FICIFOLIA PINK
Lovely pink floppy flowers open in all shades of pink on these tall stately plants. The fig leafed, or Antwerp Hollyhocks are well known for being resistant to Hollyhock rust, giving these lovely plants extra value. They will self seed where happy making gorgeous, 'Cottage Garden' drifts.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
