From England comes Halo Lavender Hollyhock, Alcea rosea. Hybridized over many years, Halo Lavender was selected for its huge, velvety lavender flowers with pink center halos. Plants form bushy clumps of crinkled foliage with tall spikes carrying large, colorful blossoms in summer. Unlike other Hollyhocks that are short lived, Halo Lavender Hollyhock is truly perennial. Plants grow 5-6' tall, 24 wide and prefers full sun. Butterflies and hummingbirds adore it.
