No other Hollyhock looks like Halo, with its extra-large, two-tone single blooms on very tall stalks! A glorious sight in the sunny garden or your best vase, these lovely flowers are a must-have for anyone who values spectacular color and size in the sunny border!
Halo is a very hardy perennial, surviving frigid zone 3 winters and sweltering zone 9 summers alike. In most gardens it will begin flowering in midsummer and continue through the season, ceasing only when the weather turns chilly in fall. 25 Seeds
Attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. Hardy Zones 3-9.
Halo reaches 6 feet high in full sun and rich, well-worked, moist soil. It should be staked or otherwise supported to hold up all those giant blooms, and is destined to become a showstopper in the sunny border or meadow garden.
Sow seeds indoors 10-12 weeks before the last frost. Fill a tray with sterile, pre-moistened, seed-starting mix. Scatter seeds over the surface. Press into the soil and cover with a very thin layer of fine soil mix. Light aids in germination. Place in warm (70 degrees F) location. Keep moist; not wet. After germination, move to a sunny place or grow under plants lights. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into small pots and continue to grow indoors. Transplant carefully so as not to disturb the roots.
