Spotlight on – Alcea rosea ‘Nigra’

Alcea rosea ‘Nigra’, otherwise known as Hollyhock

This is a stunning plant which we planted last year in Paradise, has deep black-purple flowers with bright yellow throats. Grow it at the back of the border for best effect as they are tall and willowy. They love blazing sun and produce flowers from mid- to late summer. Sow the seed during the autumn, or late winter, for flowers the following summer. Alternatively, you can sow seed during spring for flowers the following summer.

Easy to care for and a great crowd pleaser.
