Hollyhock ‘Nigra’

Alcea rosea var. nigra

Of all the dye plants we are excited to offer this season, this one might take the cake. Besides the wide range of colors - mauves! purples! greens! blues! - it’s a big, showy traditional cottage garden plant that just says Home. A short-lived biennial, we’ve started plants early enough in the season they may flower this season; otherwise expect dark purple blooms the following summer.
