Paint your garden red with Brilliant Miniature Hollyhocks. These 30-inch tall plants feature a multitude of spikes covered in dainty, 1-inch blooms that will illuminate your yard with their vivid, reddish-purple hues. Long lasting perennial hollyhocks bloom in early summer and continue to flower through the end of the season. They grow quickly and are deer resistant, making them a solid summer staple in your garden.
Sidalcea 'Brilliant' are hardy in zones 3 through 9. To ensure that your hollyhock plants thrive all season long, plant them in the spring, about 1 inch deep and 18 to 24 inches apart. They are sensitive to water-logged soil, so make sure to bury your plants in well-drained clay, loamy or sandy soil. These Dutch hollyhocks equally enjoy basking in full sunlight or brightening up areas of partial shade.
Your miniature hollyhocks will look especially brilliant when planted in bunches throughout your yard, or showcased in long, low beds. Consider using these hardy flowers to add some abundant colour along fences and paths, or plant them with purple dahlias and warm-coloured lilies to create vibrant borders. Sidalcea 'Brilliant' also make elegant cut flowers and will add a bold touch of colour to summer flower bouquets. Shine bright all summer with Brilliant Miniature Hollyhocks.
