Looking for true scarlet red hollyhocks

slazin(z8 BC)April 25, 2014

I keep buying alcea (hollyhock) seeds that are called 'red', but turn out to lean toward magenta. I have a bed with only true scarlet, orange and yellow flowers, and want a true scarlet, primary color red, red hollyhock. In essence, that means one that, if it leans at all, does so toward orange rather than wine.

Does anyone have one that would sell me some seeds in the fall? (I'm in Canada, but there's no problems sending seeds from the US - I get them all the time.)

Many many thanks!

I had several true red HH's once in my old location. Believe they came from a mix of 'Indian Spring' or 'Indian Summer'. I don't think you can find just a single color.
