Cultivar Notes - 'Las Vegas'
“Like the bright colorful lights of Las Vegas”, this mixed color strain of fig leaf hollyhocks bears large, saucer-shaped flowers in unique shades of red, copper, chestnut brown, yellow, pink, and white over a long period beginning in early summer.

This hardy species of hollyhock has decorative lobed leaves that are borne all the way up the stems, leaving little bare stem at the base. ‘Las Vegas’ is a bit shorter than the species, standing about 5-6 feet tall in bloom.

Genus Notes - Alcea
Hollyhocks were among the first flowers that colonists brought to the New World, and they've been a favorite ever since. Their colorful, bowl-shaped bloms, held aloft on towering spires, are a highlight of the summer garden.

Hollyhocks provide excellent architectural height in the garden and make good backdrops for lower growing perennials. Try growing them in the cottage garden style by planting them up against a wall or picket fence. Holloyhocks are mostly biennials or short-lived perennials, and will reseed themselves.

Feel free to grow hollyhocks under Black Walnut trees; they are tolerant of the toxic juglone that is emitted through the trees' roots.
