Trio of Pink Hollyhock (Alcea rosea) If you like pink hollyhocks then this one is for you. A real gorgeous mix of three shades of pink that tend to evolve throughout the growing season. Lighter pinks are dominant in the heat of summer followed by darker pink hues by early fall. The seed source comes from Port George NS of which we were very lucky to acquire since the new homeowner tilled over the beautiful stand of plants a few days later. A very rare variety.
