Hollyhock (Alcea rosea) is a tall and stately flowering plant known for its vibrant, funnel-shaped blossoms that grow in vertical spikes along its towering stem. Native to Asia and Eastern Europe, hollyhocks have become popular garden ornamentals worldwide. These biennial or short-lived perennial plants feature large, palmately lobed leaves at the base and produce a profusion of flowers in various colours, including pink, red, white, yellow, and purple. Hollyhocks are often found in cottage gardens, borders, and back-of-border plantings, adding a touch of old-fashioned charm to the landscape. They are known for attracting butterflies and bees, contributing to the overall biodiversity of the garden. Hollyhocks are relatively easy to grow and can reach impressive heights, creating a dramatic and visually striking display in the garden.
