Organic Midnight Black Hollyhock

Perennial flowers late June - August year 2 & beyond 5-8 feet tall Alcea rosea

HEIRLOOM Huge and luminous, pollinators flock to these gorgeous blooms often towering 6 feet or more, quite a sight as they sway in the breeze. From seed, hollyhocks flower in their second season after growing a stout island of round emerald leaves in year one. And Friends, those silky purple-black petals are an incredible dye as well as edible! We love to press them into frosted cakes alongside borage and bright calendula. Thriving in full as well as part sun, hollyhocks are short-lived perennials, often gracing our gardens five to ten years. Once established, hollyhocks are remarkably drought tolerant and even in gravelly, mediocre soils they shine. Their seeds are so exquisite and easy to save, as well! And we hope that you do ~

At Fruition, we sow hollyhock indoors in soil blocks four weeks before final frost, transplanting out after final frost.

Organic Marshmallow

A hardy perennial in Zone 3, Marshmallow is best sown as soon as it is ripe in late summer and can be difficult to germinate consistently. For best results, ‘cold stratify’ seeds for 4-6 weeks in a moist paper towel in a closed plastic bag in the fridge before you sown indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost. While Marshmallow will thrive in most soils it prefers cool, moist soil in partial or full shade where it will readily self-sow in Zone 4 or warmer
