  • Comments: Tall, sturdy Double Hollyhocks are prized for their kingly height and their showy, ruffled, carnation-like blooms. Ideal against a building, fence or wall, these old-fashioned favorites produce an explosion of colorful flowers. Excellent for cut-flower bouquets, too! Stately old fashioned plants in a charming mix of colors. Double 'powder puff' flowers are striking in size and texture. Great for mass planting, specimen planting, or at the back of the border.
