Why are Hollyhock seeds multicoloured?

Posted: 04/07/2017 at 14:15

one of the reasons for the mixes is that unless a single colour is grown in isolation you can't guarantee the colour of the offspring. Bees etc mix up all the pollen.

Oh what a great shame. Will you try again?

sometime maybe. I don't find they always come through winter and I kept them potted in the cold GH the winter before the good display.A bit of a faff

It looks like one of the Sage family to me. I would have guessed at Salvia sclarea but that only grows to about a metre high. Its very pretty whatever it is.

See original post

 more than a metre here, Lb maybe depends on soil etc

Identify plant please

What is this plant?
