Hollyhock 'Queeny Purple' Flower Award Winner
'Queeny Purple' is the shortest Alcea rosea and the first purple hollyhock available as a single color not part of a mixture. These unique traits combined with season-long flower color resulted in 'Queeny Purple' winning an AAS Award. The frilly edged blooms are a "powder puff" type having a cushion center. They measure 3 to 4 inches and are produced abundantly on the compact branching plants. 'Queeny Purple' plants will reach a mature height of 20 to 30 inches, perfect for smaller space gardens. 'Queeny Purple' is an annual that will flower prolifically the first year from a February or March sowing. 'Queeny Purple' seed will be available from mail order catalogs and plants may be purchased from garden centers.
