Flower seeds, Black Hollyhock heirloom

Flower seeds, Black Hollyhock heirloom

Black Hollyhocks are a flowering tower of gorgeousness. My grandfather grew hollyhocks outside the windows of their home so that my grandmother had flowers to look at when she was inside. John Parkinson described black hollyhocks in 1929 as a "darke red like blacke cloud." The flowers do appear black on darker days, but mostly in the sunshine they appear to be silky bright and burgundy. These are a self-seeding biennial that grow 5-6 feet tall.
