Hollyhock - Alcea rosea - €3 per plant
An excellent plant for the permaculture garden, the hollyhock is a stunning, flowering plant with presence, but not just a pretty face. Its beauty attracts bees in high numbers, butterflies and other insects, and it has a deep tap root that harvests nutrients and minerals which can be used for high quality mulch at the end of the season. Growing up to 2.5m in height, this plant is actually considered a biennial or short-lived perennial, but although short-lived, hollyhocks easily self-seed and can establish colonies in the garden that can persist for years as though they were perennials. Most of the plant's products have uses medicinally, and the young leaves and flowers make a nice addition to salads. To order this plant please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
