One of my biggest thrills this past year in the nursery was this cherry-eyed, single apricot hollyhock – and to our surprise, it sprouted the coveted fig-leaf foliage and multiple spiking habit! Hurray – another perennial Hollyhock! Just like ‘Single Black’and with A. rugosa, you’ll get a long-lived, long blooming and rust resistant 5’ tall cottage garden gem. Combine with Verbascum ‘Southern Charm’ and bloom-at-the-same-time Lilium regalefor maximum romance and fragrance. Bloom time lasts from Summer through Fall, after which you should cut the stalks to the base and side dress with some compost.
