Alcea rosea 'Fiesta Time'
This vibrant seed selection produces relatively short spikes of double, cerise pink, fringed blossoms beginning in midsummer. This is a first year flowering perennial.
The shorter height of 'Fiesta Time' makes it more suitable to courtyard gardens and containers than its taller cousins.
Feel free to grow hollyhocks under Black Walnut trees; they are tolerant of the toxic juglone that is emitted through the trees' roots. Hollyhocks are best treated as a biennial or short-lived perennial.
