PLANT - HOLLYHOCK: BLACK
Black Hollyhock was described as early as 1629 by John Parkinson as being "of a dark red like black blood," an apt description for the large single flowers that grace this plant in June and July. This biennial or short-lived perennial will form large rosettes of round, hairy leaves by autumn, and will bloom the following summer. Overly rich potting mixes will encourage damping off. May be the same black hollyhock grown for Thomas Jefferson at Monticello.
