A cottage garden favourite, hollyhocks come in every colour except purple and blue, which makes them useful companions for many other cottage-style plants. They are a magnet for bees and butterflies, too. This one has tall spires of lavender-pink flowers with darker pink veins throughout summer, which emerge from rosettes of dark green leaves. Its perfect for adding vertical interest to a sunny, well-drained border.Garden care: Water well during dry spells. All hollyhocks are pront to rust. To prevent rust this either spray with Bordeaux Mixture (organic) or Murphy Tumbleblite (non-organic) before the trouble appears, and repeat a couple of times during the summer. In autumn, cut the plants back to 15cm (6in) from the ground. As the plants are tall they will need to be staked as they grow.
