The Black Hollyhock

Old Price $28.99 Price $12.99 Packed 3 per package

sku # 63147
We ship this item in Spring at the proper planting time for your hardiness zone.

Heirloom variety has old-world charm.

Gorgeous, deep maroon blooms that look almost black grow singly—and quickly—on tall, stiff spikes. White eyes peer out from the centre of the bell-shaped flowers. Large, rough, heart-shaped lower leaves become progressively smaller toward the top of the spire. Great against a fence or a wall, and for hiding unsightly views. Alcae rosea 'Nigra'

More of a maroon red and not black but I still love it. Big beautiful flowers graced the stalks and plant is healthy and robust.
A different flower bloomed!

I planted 6 of these last year in a carefully colour-planned bed. To my great disappointment & surprise, they all came up as double fluffy bubblegum pink plants! I received a credit when I emailed and will try these again this year with fingers crossed!

I have several pink double hollyhocks that bloom each year , so I was excited for the black hollyhocks I purchased. One only came up last summer and it was pink not black.
