Product Description

Creme 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.

Growing at a glance…

Water Alcea freely during the growing season and deadhead as necessary to help prolong growth. They are suitable for planting in all types of well drained garden soil, and work best once planted in a sunny or lightly shaded location. To plant loose roots, soak them in a bucket of water for 1-3 hours before planting, then dig a hole in the border that’s big enough to house the root system. Firm in gently and water well.
