'Crème De Cassis' is a beautiful Alcea that can be planted in garden borders for a traditional cottage garden theme. These fascinating flowers grow from July through to August where the ruffled raspberry blooms have a brilliant white edging that sit along strong stems. With a little care these are a delightful perennial that will attract pollinators such as butterflies and bees into the garden. Also known as Hollyhocks, they will thrive in well-drained, fertile soil when grown in sunny areas of the garden where they will reach a height of 1.5-2m. First grade loose roots supplied.
