Alcea rugosa-Russian Hollyhock

Russian Hollyhock can either be a perennial or biennial depending on the zone but it is hardy from 2-9 and is native to Central Asia(Russia). The plants flower spikes can reach up to 9 feet in a sunny and hopefully windless area of the garden, withstand drought and bloom May-September and does not like humid summers. It will self seed and because of its deep tap roots it can not be propagated by division. Its flowers are an attraction to honey bees and butterflies and its colors go from white, to yellow, to pink, to red, to lavender.
