Creme de Cassis Hollyhock

Out of stock
Hollyhock Crème de Cassis, Alcea 'Crème de Cassis', has tall stalks that are covered with showy 3-4" white edged blooms with scrumptious raspberry centers. This mouthwatering color combination, makes this stunning Hollyhock so unique. Scrumptious veined flowers in juicy blackcurrant, fade to paler berry shades around the edges of each bloom. This treat gets even sweeter with 'Crème de Cassis' semi-double, and single flowers, bloom on the same stems! Alcea is a wonderful plant near the back of the border, working great along walls or fences. May need to be staked if planted in a windy site. Rich, moist, well-drained soil is essential. Hollyhocks can be grown under Black Walnut trees; they are tolerant of the toxic juglone that is emitted through the trees roots.
