Hollyhock Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Though their stalks are very strong, they may need to be staked if they are planted in a windy site. Hollyhocks prefer rich, moist, well-drained soil but can tolerate short periods of drought. They need full sun to really perform in the landscape.
Interesting Notes:
Hollyhocks can be grown under Black Walnut trees; they are tolerant of the toxic juglone that is emitted through the trees roots.
