Description: Heirloom Hollyhock Nigra is an old fashioned favorite heirloom highly sought after for it's unusual and showy maroon-black blooms reaching 3-6" across atop tall erect stems.

This variety of Hollyhock has been noted since the 1600's and is the "blackest" of all hollyhocks in it's genre. Hollyhock Nigra makes for a perfect cut flower and stands tall in the back of any flower bed. Although most of this variety grows 6-8 feet, we here at organic Heirloom Plants have seen these grow in our own perennial beds up to 14 ft tall!

What's the secret to growing tall Hollyhocks? Coffee Grounds! Used coffee grounds provides hollyhocks which the much needed phospherous it needs to develop strong healthy root systems. The key to any healthy plant is in it's root system so feed it nothing but organic natural sources at all times!
