Common Name:  Hollyhock
Botanical Name : Alcea rosea 'Chater's Double Pink'

Hollyhocks have been the backbone of the old fashioned cottage garden for generations and the double blooms of the Chater's Series are excellent examples of why these old fashioned beauties have never fallen out of favor. With flower spikes that can reach of 72", Chater's are a great plant for the back of the border, providing a vibrant display of vertical color from mid to late summer and attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden. Their romantic, ruffle, double flowers reach 3.5" across and open from the bottom up along its tall flower stalk. Extremely tough and drought tolerant, Chater's are easy to grow, but may need some Japanese beetle protection during some summers. Stake the flower stalks for support so they can show off their abundance of huge double blooms with pride.
Matures 48-72" tall x 18-24" wide. Hardy to Zone 2.
