Hollyhock, Jet Black

Seven Seeds Farm

$ 3.50

Hollyhock, Jet Black - Biennial. An heirloom whose mention dates back to 1629 and was planted in the gardens of Monticello by Thomas Jefferson. Grows to 4-6 ft tall with striking 3" black / purple flowers borne on tall spikes. Flowers in its second year and then tends to naturalize. A real standout in any garden! Hollyhocks were at one point referred to as outhouse flowers because they were often planted around outhouses, such that sophisticated ladies simply had to look for where the hollyhocks were growing determine where the outhouse was, rather than risk the embarrassment of asking where the outhouse was!
