HEIRLOOM. Alcea rosea. Hollyhocks are old-fashioned favorites native to central Eurasia and may have been brought to western Europe during the Crusades. Hollyhocks were brought to America by early colonists to be used as medicinal plants and for their easy to grow nature. ‘Chater’s Double Mix’ is a popular heirloom variety developed in the 1880’s by the English horticulturist Chater of Essex. It has large, fully double flowers in a variety of colors including shades of pink, red, white, and yellow. A beautiful option for the back of borders, cottage, or cutting gardens.
