Tall spires of large pale yellow blooms are produced in mid to late summer on this grandest of traditional old cottage garden flowers. This seed was harvested from primarily pale yellow flowered hollyhocks from the VanDusen Cottage Garden.

It was imported into Europe in the sixteenth century. William Turner, an herbalist of the time, gave it the name "holyoke" from which the English name derives.

To grow as annuals sow seed in containers at 13ºC (55ºF) in late winter. To grow as perennials, sow in the garden in late spring, early summer. <br>Grow in moderately fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Staking is a good idea anywhere wind might be a problem. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
