Hollyhock (Althaea Rosea) 40 seeds (#1523)

Alcea rosea is variously described as a biennial (having a two-year life cycle), as an annual, or as a short-lived perennial.
It frequently self-sows, which may create a perception that the plants are perennial. The plant may flower during its first year when sown early. It will grow in a wide range of soils, and can easily reach a height of about 2,50 m.
The flowers are full, dark red. This variety likes sandy soils, while the lighter colour seems to favour clay soils.
