Zebrina Hollyhock Flower Seed

Hollyhock (Malva Sylvestris Zebrina) - What a profusion of color in the garden! Grow Hollyhock seeds and enjoy this showy, tall favorite perennial. Zebrina Hollyhock has 2 inch white to lavender flowers with deep purple stripes pointing to a purple center. The flowers are born on tall stalks among deep green glossy foliage. In early summer, the flowers completely cover the plant! Hollyhocks are a great cut flower and they will sure bring in the hummingbirds and butterflies. Malva Sylvestris is commonly known as a French Hollyhock.

Establishing Hollyhock from flower seeds is very rewarding. To get a jump start on the growing season, you can sow Malva Zebrina seeds indoors or in the greenhouse 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost date. Use starter trays and quality starter mix and sow the Hollyhock seeds on the surface, pressing them into the soil to make good contact. Keep them consistently moist. Sowing the flower seed directly outdoors is an option as well. Prepare soil bed, sow the Zebrina seeds on the surface and dust over them very lightly with loose garden soil. Keep the Hollyhock flower seeds moist until germination has occurred. Young plants can be transplanted or even moved to other positions in the garden. The first year the seed is sown, they will establish their root system, and the second year the colorful show will begin. During the bloom season, water the plants well and fertilize. After bloom season, cut back the stalks hard, down to just 3 - 4 inches above ground. Depending on your location and growing season, the French Hollyhock plants may come back for a second bloom in late summer or early fall.
