at Digging Dog

White Hollyhock

Alcea rosea Polarstar

Alcea

Alcea rosea ‘Polarstar’ full sun

Though ‘Polarstar’, one of Jellito’s sensational new Hollyhock Spotlight-Series, was just introduced in 2010, the genus can be traced back some 60,000 years, from remains discovered at an Iraqi archaeological dig. Hollyhocks are romantically old-fashioned, a compelling quintessential mainstay for the sunny cottage garden or rear of the perennial border.

Lolling atop majestic upright stalks with big, round, rich green lobed leaves, an irresistible bevy of single pure white cup-shaped blooms showcase lemon yellow eyes. This easily grown perennial blooms the first season, prefers well-drained soil, and should be pruned close to the ground after the blossoms fade to promote an autumn rebloom.

Blooms May – October.

Size: 5'–6' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 3.

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!
