Queeny Purple Hollyhock

Queeny is always a standout and attracts a much favorable comment. The 2 to 3-foot plants stay upright all summer and prefer rich soil. The fringe double purple blooms can be as big as 4 inches across and at best it pretty much flowers all summer long. All- America Selection winner.

Hollyhock - Queenie Purple

I only planted 4 seeds. I have never grown hollyhocks before. One plant is as described short purple and frilly. I have two that are similar but have not bloomed yet, and I have a 7', pink, non-frilly hollyhock and I honestly like it better. All 4 seeds germinated. They were fun and I will grow again but know I'm likely to get a mixed bag.
