Technically a biennial, producing a basal rosette of leaves its 1st year and 6-foot flower stalks the next, Black Hollyhock often returns for a 3rd or 4th performance – as well as readily self-seeding. Three-inch flowers have shimmering silky petals of deep reddish black. Flowers have been used for centuries as a dye, making shades of blue. Dried petals fall to the ground as a one-piece tube where they are easily gathered. Popular with pollinators too.
