(Hollyhock - Russian) Alcea rugosa creates a great backdrop for your garden perennials. Butterflies and hummingbirds will love this pretty yellow hollyhock that is a hardy variety native to the Ukraine. The large, single flowers appear on strong, hairy stalks in midsummer. Alcea rugosa is resistant to hollyhock rust, and is considered to be a biennial (short-lived perennial).

Perfect Review by Christie C | Zone: 6
I have planted 10 of these in my Rocky Mountain area where the summers are hot and the winters are cold. They are perfect for this area, lovely pale yellow blooms, no rust and drought tolerant. (Posted on 4/23/2009)
