Sidalcea ‘Elsie Heugh’ full sun

‘Elsie Heugh’ is a well-loved old favorite, whose popularity has never waned and for good reason. Trouble free, best en masse and equally at home in a cottage garden or a more formal setting, this distinctive Hollyhock relative parades fringed, shell pink flowers with a silky lustre. The lovely, 5-petaled Mallow-like blossoms are borne on erect, stately branching spikes above a good-looking green basal clump of round, shallowly lobed leaves that become smaller and more fingered as they ascend the flowering stems. Provide a fertile loamy soil and cut back after blooming to promote a flowery encore.

Blooms July – mid-September.

Size: 2'–3' high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
