Check out this tall, dark & handsome fella – what’s not to love? He’s a PERENNIAL, RUST RESISTANTHollyhock, with plenty of dark maroon to (honestly) jet black, 4” blooms covering multiple sturdy stalks that’ll grow to an impressive 6’ tall by 5’ across. Talk about a great focal point! Long blooming, too – Summer thru Fall, you’ll get a gorgeous show, especially in well-draining soil. Consider planting with Nicotiana ‘Lime Green’ for a breathtaking, high-contrast juxtaposition. Cut stems back & top dress with compost when it starts getting chilly out; your ‘Black Knight’ will keep galloping back to save the day time & time again!
