AWWW - I love that color! I bought an alcea rugosa - yellow from plant delights in the spring and it bloomed beautifully. It did have rust late in the season but continued blooming away. I'm wintersowing some other colors - had some black ones to sprout too soon but we'll see. The yellow one also has a few babies that popped up in the yard. She was a stunner! Nik
