DESCRIPTION: Hollyhocks have been grown in gardens for centuries, their tall spikes of satiny, crepe-textured flowers making a fine display in mid-summer. They were usually relegated to the back of a sunny border, with something in front to hide their bare lower stems. However this is no longer necessary with this new strain. This selection features tall spikes of large, old-fashioned single flowers in various shades of red over a low mound of foliage. Flowers appear the first season. Cut plants back to 8 inches after blooming. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. The Spotlight series was bred and introduced by Jelitto Seeds of Germany.
