Chrispook's Garden


Genus: Alcea.

Species: Alcea rosea.

I grew a packet of annuals from seed in 2007. They went rather tatty in the hot weather, but revived and the flowers were very pretty. I also planted some biennuals to flower in 2008. They looked wonderfully healthy until September when they were overtaken by rust. I sprayed about twice but will need to continue treatment when growth starts again in Spring. They may not survive.
9th March. Seed from last years dwarf mexed sown in side gaden near Mahonia, and in lower garden next to fence.
