description for "Hollyhocks: Alcea rosea 'Apricot-Peach Parfait'"

Bred in England for form and color, the tall spikes of ‘Apricot-Peach Parfait’ – classic garden flowers – are packed with powder puff blossoms in delicious shades of apricot and rosy-peach. The big, 3 to 4 inch frilly blossoms unfurl along sturdy tall 5 to 7 foot stalks. Long-lasting ‘Apricot-Peach Parfait’ is perfect to screen a wall or fence and creates a stunning tall garden accent. These beautiful double hollyhocks in luscious colors will be a focal point in every garden. ‘Apricot-Peach Parfait’ may bloom the first year from seed if planted early in spring. Planted later, it will bloom the following summer. After blossoms fade, cut off the spend flower stalks just above the ground. Fertilize well and continue to water plants as needed, then roots will push another flush of enchanting flower spires to open in fall. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
