Chater's Double Mix Hollyhock is a magnificent perennial that features large, powderpuff blooms in shades of blush pink, golden yellow, maroon, salmon-pink, scarlet, white, and rose pink. These hollyhocks bring burst of color and height to any garden with its towering 6-8 feet spikes, popularly planted for adding depth and charm to cottage gardens, borders, and garden backdrops. Chater's Double Mix Hollyhock was developed by the renowned British horticulturist Henry Chater in the 19th century, specifically for its showy, peony-like blooms that resemble fluffy pompoms. Hollyhocks have been cultivated for centuries and were even believed to have protective properties during medieval times. Hollyhocks bloom over a long summer season, from mid-summer to early Fall, and flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

Also Known As:  Large-Flowered Hollyhocks, Chater's Double Alcea, Powderpuff Blooms Hollyhocks, Chater's Double Rose Mallow, Double Petal Hollyhocks, Double Alcea Rosea.

    Planting Instructions:

     

     

    Soil Preparation:

    Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep and rake several times to break up large clods. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots.
     

    Planting:

    Start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last average frost date in Spring. Transplant to a permanent location in Spring after the ground has thawed and all danger of frost has passed. For Fall planting, direct sow in late Fall before the ground freezes. Keep soil moist. Plants flower the 2nd year. Self-seeding.

    Planting Depth: 1/4 inch
    Spacing:
    1 - 2 feet
