See Hollyhock Charter's Double Icicles in miruku's Garden here.
A classic cottage Hollyhock. Spectacular, large, crystal white, fully double, powder-puff blooms grace tall strong stems. Adds height and a touch of style to the back of perennial or cottage garden borders. Especially effective when planted in groups.
Sow seeds onto the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost. Cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost. Germination usually takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots.
Prefers a well cultivated soil in a sheltered position.
