First discovered in 1872 on a gravelly river island in the Kankakee River near Altorf, Illinois, this wild hollyhock is one of the rarest native American plants. Like the domesticated hollyhock, the flowers grow on top of tall stems, and are mauve to apple blossom pink fading to white towards the center. This wildflower blooms in early summer and then gives way to pod-like fruits. These showy blooms are wonderful in cut arrangements and bouquets, as well as gracing your cottage garden or meadow planting!
